Guest Mix #1: I Do Not Love by Sound Injections on Mixcloud
This is the first of a series of guest mixes that will take place… well, idon’t know for how long! Hopefully forever!!!The opening guest mix is curated by I Do Not Love, where he released a stunning neo-romantic and dark pop 7” on Beko. Here you can join the dots about his musical universe, which is kind of conflicting in the best way possible. Below you can read the little chat we had with I Do Not Love:
Sound Injections: Who Is I Do Not Love?
I Do Not Love:: My name is Gregory Carl Miller. I’ve been writing as i do not love. for the past few years, as a way to express myself, to improve my condition.
S.I: Inspirations and influences?
I.D.N.L.: I am inspired by my shortcomings, or the shortcomings of my circumstances. It is all very reactionary, really.
S.I: Future releases?
I.D.N.L.: In 2013, Enemies List Home Recordings will be releasing my first 12” record. I hope that things come together, and that it matters. I know that it wont. But, I am enjoying the active daydream. And Dan, really everyone that I have worked with up to this point has been very kind to me (SVN SNS and Beko).
S.I.: What would be your dream collaboration?
I.D.N.L.: I would like to work with anyone who does not mind my pessimism, my perspective. I am currently collaborating with Alex on a number of things. He has been so good to me. I would like to work with anyone who wants to be my friend. I guess that is stupid.
S.I.: Name your top 5 albums/EP’s of 2012.
I.D.N.L.: I am always somewhat embarrassed talking about the music that I listen to; I am not very cool. There is so much music, I find it difficult to keep up with whatever is current. However, some of my favorite albums that I have been listening to (for mostly the first time) this year are:
Xeno and Oaklander - Sentinelle (Wierd)
HTRK - Work (Ghostly)
Brilliant at Breakfast - Being Verbose Is Easy, Being Verbose Ain’t Easy (Paperplane)
Harper Lee - Go Back to Bed (Matinee)
The Arctic Flow - As Close to a Kiss as We Will Ever Be (Little Treasure)
Italians Do It Better have been putting out some incredible things as well. Their vision as a label is really very impressive. I hate doing lists, there are a lot of people that deserve recognition.
Without U 7” is still available for purchase via Beko.
