I Don't Like Your Mixtapes

Mixtape therapy.

DARK PARTS


__________________________________________

So before I put up the last mix (Built to Rebuild), I was actually working on this one. Initially, this was only going to have 10 songs and would’ve been the shortest mix I’ve ever compiled; however, I didn’t think those 10 songs really translated just how (allow me to blatantly put it) “shitty” I felt. I won’t tell you everything because it’s personal and I’d rather not share it with however many of you read these things but, I’m sure you’ve all been there and experienced it at some point already- I’m inexperienced and have just endured the early phases of this complex emotion that is so sought-after and it finally fucking got to me this past month or so- it was literally all I could think about and crave for.

Dark Parts was built around the song of the same name, which was performed by Perfume Genius, and if you listen to it and this compilation in its entirety, you’ll know exactly where I’m coming from. You might even be in the same situation (but I’m hoping you’ll get out of it soon as compiling these mixes has made me laugh at how poorly I went about this whole thing. Ah, the power of music. I’d also like to add that the photograph chosen for this mixtape is fucking awesome, hence no text.).
