Modern Mixtape Vol. 23 – Caught Up Inside

They say blogging is dead, but I’d like to think mine is just in a coma or battling some kind of chronic illness called busyness. I won’t bother making any false promises that 180360 will come back to life any time soon, even though I really want it to. Until then, I have a little Christmas gift for you — a new mixtape! 

As always, I’ve picked my favorite alt-indie-electro tracks, most of which are new releases from the past few months of 2017. I don’t know if there’s an exact science to making mixes, but I spend a lot of time working on the flow and creating a kind of backstory to mine. This one goes through several emotions, so I hope you stick with it to the end. And turn the last song up LOUD!

As far as the bands go, I’m really digging the new ‘Antisocialites’ album from Alvvays. There are so many amazing songs on it! Sadly, I missed their tour this year. I also recently discovered Brooklyn band, Big Thief. The song I picked for the mix is a little different than the rest, but it kind of reminds me of Liz Phair, which is always a good thing! And of course, there are loads of bands that regularly make their way onto my compilations. Lastly, be sure to check out more from Japanese Breakfast and Beck’s latest album, Colors. +++

Happy Holidays and fingers crossed, I’ll be back in the New Year with a bunch of new photo and travel posts that I’ve half written.
