Life In Mixtape Form #75

Life In Mixtape Form #75 from almostaghost on 8tracks Radio.

Ending the month, ending the year, in about a week, I’ll start listing my favorite albums of 2012. Probably will not be writing as much as I have the last few years, some will just be presented with minimal comment. But I’m sure that there’ll be a few I want to talk about. 🙂 December! This LIMF mix ended up ALL over the place.

Life In Mixtape Form #54

Life In Mixtape Form #54 from almostaghost on 8tracks.

Life rolls on, a mixtape of days, one after the other, after the other. And as I continue with this unending mix series, I mean that both literally and figuratively.

Coachella 2012 Fridays

As I mentioned somewhere along the way, I’m going to Coachella again this year. But even when I don’t, I enjoy going through the lineup and checking out all the artists. This is a mix of the ones I like for Friday. It feels like an odd collection, the Friday lineup, but it will be a fun day to kick off everything. A short breakdown:

British artists: Pulp, James, The Horrors*, Yuck*, Arctic Monkeys*, WU LYF*, The Midnight Beast*, Wolf Gang*

French artists: Breakbot, M83, SebastiAn, Madeon*

Texas artists: The Black Angels, Neon Indian, Explosions In The Sky

intense artists: Refused* (hardcore scream punk), Death Grips* (hardcore hiphop), Atari Teenage Riot* (digital hardcore)

women: Mazzy Star, EMA, Hello Seahorse!, honeyhoney*, Ximena Sarinana*

rap/soul/reggae: Frank Ocean, Jimmy Cliff*, Kendrick Lamar

artists I didn’t know very well before doing this and was impressed by: EMA, The Black Angels, Hello Seahorse!

personal favorites of the day: Mazzy Star, Pulp, Frank Ocean

Explosions In The Sky @ 2640 Space, Baltimore, MD – September 2, 2010 [UPDATE 1: Recording Info]

Explosions In The Sky recently announced a small handful of US dates, presumably a warmup for their upcoming album / ensuing tour. They played to a sold out crowd of about 600 people in a hollowed out church in the historic district of downtown Baltimore, and I was lucky enough to get a ticket last minute. What more can I say.
