P.S. Dalton, this is for you!!! Muah!
Ah, the time-honored tradition of the mixtape… A way to share a little part of yourself with a new friend or potential love-interest, a personalized icebreaker, a little note written with the music of others… this is what I have for you today and what I hope to give you at least once a month!
For this month’s mixtape I found myself thinking about the impending chilly weather that comes with Autumn. I absolutely love this time of year! The crispness that sets in and brings back all of my beloved cardigans and layering pieces from the depths of the out of season closet… mmm! So, I picked a few alt. folk tracks that more or less fit this transitional mood for me.
In Our Talons – Bowerbirds
Japan – Coco Rosie
Sharkey’s Day – Laurie Anderson
I Love You – Andrew Jackson Jihad
Never Relaxed – Daniel Johnston
Dirty Dishes – Deer Tick
Sing Out – Ghost Mice
Peach, Plum, Pear – Joanna Newsom
I hope you enjoy this mix! And in the spirit of getting to know each other, what are some of your favorite songs, bands, genres, etc?
