Modern Mixtape Vol. 20: Down to the Sound


modmixvol20coverHello strangers! Thought I’d pop in with a little gift of music for the holidays. I know I always say this, but I really hope to find more time for this neglected space in the new year. (once my little monkey is in preschool!) Until then, here’s what I’ve been listening to recently…

Loving girl groups like Warpaint, Computer Magic, Maggie Rogers and of course, Angel Olsen. She’s got a spot-on Stevie Nicks vibe in the song I’ve shared. Jim James’Here in Spirit” is a new soulful find and Cass McCombs, “Bum Bum Bum” is super catchy. There are some perennial favorites like Bon Iver, Flaming Lips and Temples. Plus there’s some new to me finds like Beverly, Blood Orange and High Highs. Honestly, they’re all good songs — but more importantly, I can’t believe this is my 20th mix!

Sadly, I just learned that 8tracks is now charging for any listening beyond one hour a day. What a bummer! I’ll put this mix up there for now, but will be on the lookout for another free streaming service. Happy Holidays!

Modern Mixtape Vol. 17: Get to You


180360_ModMix17I lied. I am clearly incapable of posting music quickly. After beating myself up about this, I realized the whole point isn’t to deliver music as fast as possible. Instead, it’s about making well-curated mixes of what I liked and listened to each season. 

‘Get to You’ is heavy on strong female vocals. About half of these songs are new releases, while the others managed to make it through the winter and my editing process to be included. I really wanted to add Florence’s new song, “What Kind of Man” but it just didn’t fit, so be sure to check that out. I hope you like it!

Modern Mixtape Vol. 15: Don’t touch the ground


180360ModernMixtape16cover I realize it’s not fair after this much radio silence to pop in with only a mix of music, but it’s all I’ve got right now.  Hopefully I will be able to come back to this space soon. I miss it (and you)! Until then, here are some great tracks for Spring 2014. There’s so much good music that has come out recently. I plan on rocking it on our Spring Break road trip. Enjoy!  Listen on [8Tracks] Download [HERE]
