As he Walked into the Field


Here is a compilation I made physically today for a friends birthday – here as a digital mix. The title is a quote of a Robert Stillman song. The style is well, eclectic like always- some moods are summer light, some are melancholic – maybe “nature” is the main theme: sandbars, summer lights, fields.

Robert Stillman / Sarah Louise / Ahmed Malek / Hailu Mergia / Feu! Chatterton / Ignatz / Little Wings / Marisa Anderson / Steve & Ed / Scott Fagan / Dinosaur jr / the spike drivers / Ted Lucas / David Thomas Broughton / Group Afous d`Afous / Ahmed Sharief Yusuf

(Summer 2016 by joe le taxi, 75 min. – photo shot at the “by the lake festival”, Berlin – Weissensee last weekend)

Props go to the dying for bad music blog for posting great music and great inspiration! – some songs I took here from this site for this mix, merci

Julio Medem´s “Ma Ma”

Deep, emotional, heavy sometimes surreal, sometimes hard to bare. A fairytale with an amazingly strong Penelope Cruz. One of Julio Medem´s best Movies since Julia y el Sexo.

A bit of latin emotionalism, some spanish “dolor” would suit as well the German realism cinema.
Here´s the song of the movie – never mind great kitsch, like in Almodovars “Volver”:

See the movie in Eiszeit Kino in Berlin in Original language.
