i’ve recently started a monthly mixtape/CD group modelled after the international mixtape project at this BBC subsite i’ve been into lately (interested, winnie?). for my first mix i wanted to take advantage of the slightly longer time on a cassette (and also to use up at least one of the many cassettes i still have lying around), and so i threw together an ABC mix. this is another one of those mostly hodge-podgy mixes of one-off tracks that i like reasonably well but haven’t yet used, and i generally leant towards being semi-indie and generally upbeat. i tried not to worry too much about trying to fix the tracks that stick out too much (e.g. the jimmy eat world), and since 26 tracks didn’t fit, rather than beat myself up trying to find shorter tracks i just deleted my least favorite. if you were wondering, they were:

bis . sci-fi superstar
ladybug transistor . wooden bars
neutral milk hotel . holland, 1945.

not much more to say, other than to give a quick mention to gifrants, a haitian busker (solo acoustic guitar and voice) in boston who i liked enough to buy his CD. i’m saving my favorite track of his for another mix, but this track’s pretty good too.
