Mixtape Project No. 1, a song for each letter of the alphabet. The reason for the season? You ever play your ipod in alphabetical order by song and notice that the mix ain’t too shabby? Well, we created a mixtape with you in mind. Is the idea the most original? I don’t know, but the results are fucking amazing! Each member posted a single song, in order, and 26 songs later, BLAM-O! Awesome mixtape!
New, old, vinyl, digital, all covered. After a quirky fun start by the Parenthetical Girls, it slows down, creating mood and drama, waiting, like a tiger, to hit you upside the head somewhere toward the end of “I Don’t Like You Anymore”! Then the roller coaster begins (represented quite nicely by “My Favorite Year”), and genres & styles start flying around (you think “dropping rhymes” is hard? try dropping genres, mother-bitches!). Until, after a stirring epicesque “Y” song, Walter School says goodnight with some “Zombies”. Nice…
Don’t take my word for it, try it out! But first, let me say, I hope you enjoyed our little TSURURADIO Unintentional Mixtape Week, it was a lot of work (and a lot of music shared), but man was it worth it. When you think about how many albums I listen to in a week, I’ve never had so much fun as I have with the insane number of mixtapes posted & created by our music lovers down in the society this week (and, I’m sure, in the coming weeks).
