Charlot Webster Makes Things.

dave tapes too.

Posted in music by charlotwebster on March 8, 2009

Before we went on tour, Dave (who plays my songs with me) wanted to make  a tape for the exchange. Obviously Dave being Dave left it ’til right before we went. He doesn’t have a tape player of his own so I said he could use mine, so he brings in the blank 90 min TDK I gave him for his birthday and a whole stack of CDs to my room and starts and I give him my wise words of making a mixtape tips and left him to it. He spent all night dancing away in my room so I ended up sleeping on the sofa. Here is what he made:

“This tape is fast”


1. Architecture in Helsinki – Red Turned White
2. Saves The Day – See You
3. Stars – Set Yourself on Fire
4. Hot Chip – Out At The Pictures
5. Captain Everything! – The Bomb Song
6. Why? – The Vowels Part II
7. Pedro The Lion – Arizona
8. The Movielife – Once In A Row
9. Electric Light Orchestra – Mr Blue Sky
10. New End Original – Lukewarm
11. Reggie and The Full Effect – Your Bleedin’ Heart
12. Scholars – Tornadoes
13. I Can Make A Mess Like Nobody’s Business – The Best Happiness Money Can Buy


1. Death Cab For A Cutie – The New Year
2. Fleet Foxes – Ragged Wood
3. Jimmy Eat World – A Praise Chorus
4. Vampire Weekend – M79
5. Head Automatica – At The Speed of a Yellow Bullet
6. The Shins – Caring Is Creepy
7. Kings of Convenience – I Don’t Know What I Can Save You From
8. The Get Up Kids – I’m a Loner Dotty, A Rebel!
9. Holy Fuck – Lovely Allen
10. RX Bandits – Crushing Destroyer
11. Sufjan Stevens – The Mistress Witch From McClure
12. Ben Folds Five – Boxing

He drew a pretty picture of a racing car & wrote the following in the sleeve:

“Dear Tape Recipient, Yo, wuzzurp, thanks for taking my tape! I hope you think it’s really cool because I do. There are 2 problems with it though; 1. The recording got a bit botched so after the first two songs everything is a little quicker than it should be 2. I didn’t put any Weezer on it.”


ALSO he found an old mixtape I made for his birthday 6 years ago! It is awesome, featuring mostly old rhythm and blues and including at least 3 songs from musicals, haha! I have always had good taste. I’ll try and nab it and post that up at some point, too.
