June 2013

June 2013 from almostaghost on 8tracks Radio.

A handful of songs from 2013, that I liked enough to share. Good mix this time I think, I had fun making it this month. Will try to step back up on the mix game now though.

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 Sundays

Coachella 2012 Sundays from almostaghost on 8tracks.

Ah we’re flooding you with mixes this weekend! These should keep you busy for a couple of days, at least.

At first glance, the Sunday lineup for this year’s Coachella did not have the usual ton of excitement. But getting into it, I found it is totally underrated group of artists, and should lead me to a very diverse day of music.

Stuff I did not know before going through the lineup but am now excited for: First Aid Kit, Gotye, Le Butcherettes, Gardens & Villa, The Gaslamp Killer

UK artists (seems to be a big thing this year!): Florence + The Machine, Band Of Skulls, Fanfarlo, Wild Beasts*, Spector*, Metronomy*, Nero*, Calvin Harris*, Flux Pavilion & Doctor P*

Lots of other countries today!: Seun Kuti (Nigeria), First Aid Kit, AVICII*, Dada Life* The Hives* (Sweden), Gotye (Australia), Le Butcherettes (Mexico), Modeselektor, Zedd* (Germany), Airplane Boys (Canada), Justice*, Housse De Racket* (France), Noisia* (Netherlands)

And while most days at Coachella are probably similar, I was struck by the wild mix of genres on this Sunday: gangsta rap, different varieties of soul, afrobeat, female punks, electrojazz, electro hiphop, electro, gypsy rock, mashup DJs, whatever Santigold is. Going to be a lot of fun!

AlmostAGhost’s July 2011 mix

My monthly mix of new music is up now. This mix ended up a bit strange, somehow. I’m having a conflicted relationship with 2011 musics, but that doesn’t stop me from having good stuff to share every month!

Also, don’t neglect Mint’s latest cool “since we last spoke” mixes a couple of posts down!
