On the surface, these look like a decent mix for the Friday iChing, though I have to say that I'm not intimately familiar with all of these tracks myself. Perhaps in an update later, once I've had more time to listen to (vs. list) the songs.

No vinyl-derived tracks, though — they're only around 2% of the library.
The answer is yes - at least I haven't heard of any of them.
I've heard of two (Wire and TheObviousCritsFav) and only ever heard TOCF--and them pre-suicide.

So I'm voting with Bryan. The three of us all agreeing on something may cause a rift in the universe--or a major life change for you, judging by the previous posting.
I do sometimes like to think of the comments section here as a virtual bubble chamber, as long as the interactions are below rift-in-the-universe energies.
Ok, I owned a Railway Children album on vinyl, and "Brotherhood."

The only Felt song I know is "Primitive Painters" with Elizabeth Fraser on vocals. Do you have a whole album? Is it good?
Phantom: I do have the album, Ignite The Seven Cannons, and enjoy it quite a bit. "Primitive Painters" is a bit of an outlier, though the general guitar and organ sound carries through most of the album, which was produced by Robin Guthrie of Cocteau Twins. The vinyl sounds a bit low-fi overall (a CD reissue is readily available, but I don't have it), but that might just be a signal that I need a new stylus.
Hmmm, I'll have to look it up then. Thanks for the review! You guys are becoming my Consumer Reports!
