what drink goes with what album? (question by daniel handler)
gail cf: veuve clicquot goes with everything. I would imagine the special 20th anniversary “chickfactor” cocktail, created by the acclaimed booze handler daniel searing (from such bands as big jesus trash can, the saturday people and glo-worm), would go nicely with the chickfactor mixtape (pictured below).
daniel handler: rye neat, fire! you liked me five minutes ago
delmonico served up followed by bottle of chianti, divine comedy, casanova
chartreuse martini, st. etienne the sound of water
constantly warmed-up highball, the clash sandinista!
empty out the cabinet and experiment with weird liqueurs, 69 love songs
I could play this all night. and have.
stephen the real tuesday weld: tea, with anything.
james dump/yo la tengo: coffee and/or seltzer pair perfectly with all records.
stephin the magnetic fields: still trying to figure that out.
corin tucker: for me it was whiskey and “my aim is true” by elvis costello. these days it is kombucha and fiona apple.
the legendary jim ruiz: gary mcfarland’s “soft samba” album is best enjoyed with the soft samba coctail. pour two ounces of dry (fino) spanish sherry over two ice cubes in an old fashioned glass. add half an ounce of tropical fruit juice or pineapple juice. add a dash of angostura bitters.
gordon the fan modine: J&B scotch and soda and the kingston trio’s “goin’ places” will take you somewhere pretty specific.
matt lorelei: a shandy for smiley smile. or maybe a dolores park swizzle with st. george’s absinthe (rum, lime, maraschino, absinthe, bitters).
bridget st john: a good red wine goes with most albums in my collection!
fran cannane: red wine goes with all cannanes albums…increasing in price and quality over the years.
joe pines / foxgloves: red wine with loveless, early-evening white wine with bryter later, late-night whiskey with magnetic fields’ distortion, tea and panettone with u2’s war, tea and a biscuit with reading, writing & arithmetic, hot chocolate with deacon blue’s oooh las vegas.
kelly velocity girl:
heavenly vs satan – heavenly
harviestoun bitter & twisted
playing lightly, stinging ever so slightly. best ingested on a mild early summer afternoon.
“strawberry wine” – my bloody valentine
jj prum wehlener sonnenuhr riesling kabinett (cool vintage please)
while the title seems to beg some fruitified concoction, let the mild sweetness and filigreed acidity take you where you need to go. for the spring time please.
suburban light – the clientele
jw lees moonraker
a gentle warm up after “the football crowds have all gone home”. is there is a bit of mist on a late fall afternoon? check.
for if you cannot fly – small factory
corpse reviver #2
turns winter into summer. the punch bowl serves a as suitable object to jump off of when in the throes of pop ecstasy.
