January Mixtape

Mustache Robots January Mixtape

2010 explodes from my speakers with Dessa, Hot Chip, Los Campesinos!, jj, and Corinne Bailey Rae to name a few highlights. These songs represent what I listened to the most in January, at least those I still like enough to share. If you download the mixtape, please leave a comment when you’ve had a chance to listen.

Please support the artists you like. For sampling purposes only. Music: it’s what’s for dinner.

October Mystery Mixtape

boo
Boo. Happy Halloween.
Here it is: Mustache Robots October Mystery Mixtape. The top tunes representing what filled my ears, head and dare I say, heart, this autumnal month. I’ve included 4 spooky songs which creep me out as per my previous post. Thanks to all who submitted their scary songs on my Facebook status. Download and enjoy, but please give me feedback otherwise it’s a futile echo not bounced back from the cave wall. And if you’re prone to mix making, do share yours with me.

Monthly Music – July ’09

What a month of new stuff. Was pretty hard to narrow it down to under 80 minutes especially with a couple undeniable older ones. Check out my friends We Became Actors on your stereo. And Phoenix will just not leave the playlists. Good thing they’re back here in September.

Best of July

Monthly Music – Jan ’09

Each month I keep a folder in iTunes of what I am liking and playing most for those four weeks. Usually it’s stuff that I recently acquired. At the end of the month, I keep only the best (or what was really representative of that month) 80 minutes to make a mixed CD-R time capsule. I try to only allow at most the top two songs from an artist/album. And I keep the track order to when I it was added in my iTunes from oldest to newest. Sure I could jazz this blog post up with links and more info on these artists, but I’ll do you one way better. If you actually want to know more, make a comment here and I’ll make you a listening copy of any of these compilations you fancy. Please support these artists. Thanks for reading.
