My First Muxtape


I rather like the simplicity and elegance of muxtape.com. Upload songs. Arrange them. Send ’em out to people. It’s not unlike making an actual mixtape, except that there are no tapes. And you can skip and jump about at will (which I try to do in public as often as possible.) I tried it out, of course. I’m not one to pass up testing a new web toy. The results are here.

I think it’s a great way to update what’s on your music radar from time to time. And there’s a nifty RSS feed attached, which means I can keep a list in my sidebar. You can, too! I mean, if you really feel like it…

The current track list is almost entirely spontaneous. Something I just threw together in a manner of moments, looking through stuff I’ve picked up in the past little while. As I find cool, new stuff, I’ll add and shift and change things around. And if you don’t feel like clicking on the link, here’s the inaugural lineup:

The The “Lung Shadows”

The Kills “U.R.A. Fever”

Juliana Hatfield “I Can’t Kill Myself”

Love Psychedelico “Aha! (All We Want)”

Goldfrapp “Happiness”

Morcheeba “Hemphasis”

The Wombats “Moving To New York (Alt. Version)”

Vetiver “Been So Long”

Plasticines “La Règle Du Jeu”

Malcolm Middleton “Solemn Thirsty”

Thurston Moore “Honest James”

Mandalay “Insensible”

Enjoy. I was gonna post a funny picture and call it a day since it’s the Trickster’s Holiday, but I’ve got a meeting in the State of Hollywood this A.M. I gotta run.

    Glad to see The Wombats getting some muxtape love. Their debut selftitled US EP is out on April 8th and i can’t wait to get it.

    I love the Wombats. I can’t even remember how I first heard them, but it was very recent. Perhaps a mention of the SXSW appearance? Whatever the case, they’re cool.

    Back when Matt Johnson was still somewhat “underground,” I developed the pronunciation “Tha Tha.” I never have shaken the habit, even when people look at me like they don’t whom I’m referring to. Still love the 2nd album — reminds me of ecstasy.
