I can’t think of any good ideas for mixtapes for all of you guys, so I’m going to cheat a little and put up tapes that I’ve made for other people because they’re still awesome. I’m starting with someone who I know doesn’t have a tumblr and will not see this so that I feel a little bit better about this atrocious business of exploiting personal matters. I’m blowing this way out of proportion…. Here it is!
1 THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM - Great Expectations - The ‘59 Sound
2 GORILLAZ (feat. DALEY) - Doncamatic - Doncamatic (Single)
3 THE HUSH SOUND - Molasses - Goodbye Blues
4 LISA MITCHELL - Coin Laundry - Wonder
5 METRIC - Sick Muse - Fantasies
6 TEGAN & SARA - Don’t Rush - Sainthood
7 PETER BJORN AND JOHN - Young Folks - Writer’s Block
8 THE POSTAL SERVICE - The District Sleeps Alone Tonight - Give Up
9 SHE & HIM - In the Sun - Volume Two
10 THE BLACK KEYS - Next Girl - Brothers
11 THE FRATELLIS - Chelsea Dagger - Costello Music
12 HARVEY DANGER - Flagpole Sitta - Where Have all the Merrymakers Gone?
13 THE NATIONAL - Fake Empire - Boxer
I don’t really have much to say about this one, it’s just kind of a fun mix that I made with a variety of different bands and artists. Ellen (who this tape was for) really liked it, but said that a few of the songs were « a bit…. eclectic » :D
This is a really short musicy-listy thing that I made tonight while I was feeling kind of sad and wanted something good to listen to. It’s only eight songs, but that’s okay because it’s eight really good songs that go really well together.
1 ADELE - Daydreamer - 19
2 REGINA SPEKTOR - Eet - Far
3 REGINA SPEKTOR - Samson - Begin to Hope
4 DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE - Talking Bird - Narrow Stairs
5 THE NATIONAL - Conversation 16 - High Violet
6 THE NATIONAL - Slow Show - Boxer
7 MUMFORD & SONS - Thistle & Weeds - Sigh No More
8 DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE - Transatlanticism - Transatlanticism
I was going to change the spacing so that the songs and whatever were closer together, but I kind of like it how it is now. I hope that if anyone actually reads this that they like it as much as I do, especially right now.
