Bringing Back the Mixtape

Does anyone else remember mixtapes? When you’d record on a little cassette different songs you found on the radio, or if you were REALLY advanced, from a CD?They’re making a comeback. In a really, really cool way.A lot of my set tonight comes from friends of mine (I mentioned some of them in my last post, they’re from all over the world) because when we get bored, we do massive music exchanges. Except instead of just burning a CD or making a mixtape we throw it into a zip file and upload it. It’s how I found both La Roux and The Hush Sound, which are now two of my favorite bands.It also introduced me to some world music, I strongly recommend “Andas” by Loke Nyburg. It may be in Swedish, but it’s beautiful all the same.-Briana
