mix: the night ain't filled with gentle things (apocalypse songs)  

Songs in the key of bluegrass apocalypse. Because hey, I have a thing for scary Americana.



1. it's alright ma (i'm only bleeding) | the duhks
darkness at the break of noon
shadows even the silver spoon
the handmade blade, the child’s balloon
eclipses both the sun and moon
to understand you know too soon
there is no sense in trying


2. strange things | abigail washburn & the sparrow quartet
well, ships are sinking in the ocean
planes are having collusions in the air
well, people, you may not believe it
but there's something wrong somewhere


3. where have all your good words gone | laura gibson
where have all your good words gone
where have all your mercies gone?
oh, when did all your bones start to bend?


4. o death | jen titus
no wealth, no ruin, no silver, no gold
nothing satisfies me but your sou
l


5. barton hollow | the civil wars
miles and miles in my bare feet
atill can't lay me down to sleep
if I die before I wake
I know the Lord my soul won't take


6. ten men | david mallett
ten men in black hats
on a cold, cold night
ten black cars sat idling
in the glow of the red daylight
ten men with black hearts
cutting up the spoils


7. pharaoh | crooked still
farewell, children, I sure must leave you
farewell


8. sickle and hood | brown bird
two young lovers wandered into the woods
and Death come a trailin' behind
the young boy bit the sickle of the big black hood
while his lover just laid down and cried


9. believer | viva voce
there's nothing I can do
to keep me safe from you


10. beat the devil's tattoo | black rebel motorcycle club
there is no peace here
war is never cheap, dear


11. john the revelator | ollabelle
who's that writing?
john the revelator
the book of the seven seals


12. annabelle lee | sarah jarosz
for many years I've wandered through this kingdom by the sea
I've laid myself beside the bones of the beautiful Annabelle Lee


13. rocks and water | deb talan
seven times I went down
six times I walked back
and I don't fear the dark anymore
because I've become all that, all that


14. god's gonna cut you down | johnny cash
go tell that long tongue liar
go and tell that midnight rider
tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down


15. cold as it gets | patty griffin
I know a cold as cold as it gets
I know a darkness that's darker than cold
a wind that blows as cold as it gets
blew out the light in my soul


16. darkness, darkness | richard shindell
darkness, darkness, long and lonesome
is the day that brings me here
I have felt the edge of silence
I have known the depths of fear


17. the night pt. 2 | the builders & the butchers
he's a man with a funeral song to sing
the night ain't filled with gentle things


18. dead end alley | bill elm & woody jackson
(instrumental.)

the night ain't filled with gentle things (.rar)

So I found your LJ via vega-ofthe-lyre's Tumblr and I absolutely fell in love with your mixes and am basically going through your journal, downloading all of them right now. They are so so wonderful! Thank you.

Also, I read about your Mr Caruthers story - couldn't find it anywhere though but just saw that apparently it's friends only so I would love it if you would add me back because I from what I've read about it so far I would love, love, love to read it.

I got here through tumblr, and damn am I happy I did. This music is right up my alley (MORE THE BUILDERS & THE BUTCHERS!) but only have like 5 songs on this so perfect. And scary Americana is great, so I love this and have taken thank you!

Hey, sorry me again! Don't wanna spam you but is there anyway/anywhere I could read your Rue Caruthers story?! Sounds like it'd be right up my alley and I'd love to read it. Thanks.

This is so awesome. It's cold and the weather has been really weird where I live and this is the perfect mix for today. Eagerly looking forward to listening to it. Thanks!
