(November 10th, 2011)
I literally made this for my trip to NYC the next day and it didn't download to my ipod properly. Anyhoot, this is probably one of the best mixtapes I've made in a long long time and I still struggle to meet its perfect balance. I'm not even sure if I can be calling these things mixtapes anymore, mixes, and they're no longer under 80mins either too so that aren't even mix cd-r's.
To talk about the mixtape, it covers a span of music from 50 years back to today. I often find it easier to make mixes with music that is closer in year because of the vibe they portray as well as the sound aesthetic.
From the likes of The Herd, Cat Power, Jon Brion, Spiritualized, Nick Drake, Bob Dylan, Emiliana Torrini, Brian Eno, Kings of Convenience, David Gilmour, Bill Wells, Wilco, Bridget St. John, Donovan, Hope Sandoval, AA Bondy, Ohbijou, and Bryan Ferry to name them all. If you haven't liked any of the other mixes here but you're still willing to give this all a try, check this one, buddy.
