Life In Mixtape Form #60

Life In Mixtape Form #60 from almostaghost on 8tracks.

In case you’re new or happened on here, I’ll explain. Every night, I pick a song of the day. I have a few methods for picking the song, but really it’s just something that in some way I feel like sharing, or represents the day somehow. Then, after 8 days, I can make a little mix on 8tracks.com. Then, PROFIT.

The mixes are usually quick – I hope not too repetitive (though I definitely choose my favorite artists more often). Also, I don’t put as much work as I might on other mixes, so songs may not flow or be quite unbalanced or whatnot. They’re just little snapshot mixes. But I do stand by all the songs! 🙂 Thanks for listening.

New Snowden Video The Beat Comes

Fuller, more proper review coming, but had to take a moment to share the new Snowden video for the first single (The Beat Comes) on album # 2 (No One In Control). Six years after the debut Anti-Anti, No One In Control drops this fall on Serpents & Snakes Records, but why wait to get your Snowden fix? Catch them on tour right now (dates below) and look out for remixes possibly coming as quick as next week.

Shameless plug: Check out my all things Snowden site, Snowdenology, at http://snowdenology.net/

Life In Mixtape Form #57

Life In Mixtape Form #57 from almostaghost on 8tracks.

These 8 days flew by! Highlighted by a Laura Marling concert, which was phenomenal. It was my third time seeing her, but the first time it was really her element. First time, she was opening for another artist; second time, Coachella. This one was in a tiny outdoor amphitheatre, and it was quite perfect. Her voice, her songs, her sweet shy English charm. Her songs have grown on me quite a lot, her last album took a lot of time to burrow into my brain and realize just how stunning they are. She keeps growing and getting better, and I felt like I was seeing Joni Mitchell or someone at that sort of level. If she’s not there, she will be. Soon.
