In preparation for our 2015 Marfa Myths festival, Mexican Summer’s staff selected their favorite tracks from the artists involved with the art, film, and music festival happening in Marfa this March 13-15. The Spotify playlist includes one song from each artist, beginning with “The Lord’s Favorite” by the young Danish punk band Iceage from their third studio album Plowing Into the Field of Love. On guitar and vocals Rønnenfelt sings out, “After all, I think it’s evident that I am God’s favorite one.”

The playlist then veers towards a melancholy,
echoing piano track titled, “Clearing,” by Liz Harris of Grouper. Her recent album Ruins she wrote and recorded almost entirely on a 2011 residency in Aljezur, Portugal. Harris writes in an artist statement on the album, “Living in the remains of love. I left the songs the way they came; I hope that the album bears some resemblance to the place that I was in.”

You’ll also find songs by Dev Hynes of Blood Orange and Connon Mockasin who are scheduled to do a recording residency in Marfa as part of this year’s festival. Spirited by their upcoming collaboration that will culminate in a limited-edition 12-inch record, their tracks “It’s Choade My Dear,” and “Time Will Tell” are listed side by side.

Finally, the playlist ends with two drone tracks reminiscent of water: a song from Bitchin’ Bajas’ album Water Wrackets and the dreamy, noise-filled “River Like a Spine” by Jefre Cantu-Ledesma on his album Love is a Stream.

What went wrong It was a red, Converse Rockaway Slip that did just that. Elisabetta Boaretto, head of the Weizmann Institute’s D REAMS (DANGOOR Research Accelerator Mass Spectrometry) laboratory, has made it possible to define the period of time that the cave was occupied and thus the skull’s age. Analyses were made 5 times for each yoghurt at 4C. We could easily be talking about him right now. Otherwise,
