wow, i guess i really don't listen to much stuff with words in it any more.
this quantic soul orchestra song is a cover of a bonobo song by the same name; this version's got more horns and more funk, and is pretty good overall. i stumbled across run_return recently, they're really good, i'm still getting familiar with their stuff. we've been hearing mux mool recently on this thing, and here is another song by him. i don't know anything about the song that comes after.
prefuse 73 are a little more experimental than you're probably used to; i like a few of their songs, though, and this is one of them. stereolab can be really relaxing at times, i'm pretty sure they're french and have been around for a long time but i honestly do not know their story. i've vaguely known of saycetfor a couple of years now; i found this song recently and it's pretty good.
little people are all the rage recently, and this song has a tendency to get stuck in my head. this sugarette remix is pretty good, as long as you don't get weirded out by listening to a weird electronic child voice for six minutes. finally, this broken social scene song is from a live session they did with a radio station called KCRW. i have no idea where i got it from, but that session is one of my top 25 favorite albums, and i've been listening to it for a bunch of years now.
every month, i'll put up a new mixtape on the right side of this inter net site, and some words having to do with that mixtape will run down the left side. some tapes will have more or fewer songs than others, and sometimes tapes will have themes. i hope that the one thing that they will all have in common will be that they are all made of good music, and that my mom and anyone else who cares to listen to them will find new music that they like by listening to these things.
which reminds me: this site is a birthday present for my mom. because, in the words of a wise otter, my mom should always get presents because she is my mom. for the technically inclined: this site is powered by php, duct tape, sheer force of concentration, and a modified version of opentape.
