Oh man, are you guys in a more treats! What started on Friday will only continue this week as we present more “Presents…”! Member vinyl rips & today’s little share, our latest mixtape! This one was inspired by my failed attempt to reconcile (nice word, eh? probably using it completely wrong, but at least I’m trying! I need to beat baby at scrabble one day!) combining Destroyer’s Trouble In Dreams with Hello, Blue Roses The Portrait Is Finished & I Have Failed to Capture Your Beauty… into a boy-girl-boy-girl album. I was going to call it Destroy Your Blue Roses, get it? Yeah, not so good, it failed.
But, out of the ashes came (what I think) is a pretty sweet mixtape. The idea was now to make a cohesive flow of equal parts male and female led songs. The final draft is actually the third draft. The first one was Side Boy (all boy songs) then Side Girl (all girl songs), but then it became a boy-girl-boy-girl affair (well, actually, girl-boy-girl-boy), allowing my baby and I to take turns singing in the car, ’cause we are super cool like that.
I hope you enjoy it, it’s got a mix newer music, older music, and bands already featured here. All-in-all, the music and flow was more important than making sure I’ve never featured a song before (the music is ALWAYS king). Okay, that’s it, grab, load it up, and enjoy as…
