I Don't Like Your Mixtapes

Mixtape therapy.

BUILT TO REBUILD

_____________________________________________

 I’ve been in a weird music funk as of lately and haven’t been able to listen to anything else aside from Lana Del Rey, Perfume Genius and Porcelain Raft. I figured it was time to shake it off because A) I don’t want to be sick of any of these three records as the year progresses and B) there’s been a shitload of amazing leaks and releases that I was/have not been listening to (this also applies to the bands/musicians that have been e-mailing me. I’m trying to think of a better and easier way for your content to get heard through this website as I have not been checking my e-mails as consistently as I should be- I sincerely and regrettably apologize for that). I was working on another one at the wee-early hours of this morning but I decided to go for a different sound/mood. Like the previous mixtape I compiled back in January (Light-headed), this one continues on with the alternative/indie genre and contains some bands that I haven’t been listened to since summer so there’s a blend of tracks from 2011 and 2012 (as it should be). Listening to the other three records have kept me at a standstill- personally, physically and musically, so it’s nice to be able to move around and bob my head side-to-side rather than curling up in a ball with my layers of blanket hovering over me. With that being said (or typed), I hope you guys enjoy it.

(On another note, there’s still a lot of music that I have yet placed onto a mixtape but I think the next one will be more upbeat and electronic/funk/not mellow or moody. It might be moody but, it’ll be the good kind.)
