Man, I love our community… I really do. Monday, we shared member and photo contest winner Isa’s Autumn inspired mixtape, right? Well today, I’ve got another gem for you. This time it’s our man Walzac and his beauty of a mixtape For Once I Wish To Sail.
As he wrote, “With the pleasant sailing months behind, I bring you a mix of love, loss, and friendship; all packaged in a nautical arrangement. Hope you enjoy.” Well, if that wasn’t enough to get my download trigger finger itching, take a look at the playlist. Go ahead, I’ll wait… Just scroll down, take a gander and come back.
I hope you have your sea legs though, because each song is soaking wet and (are you ready for this?) sure to have you (you sure you’re ready?) gasping for air! HA! Yeah, I went there! Fuck it!
But seriously, just a wonderful mixtape of water-themed songs about everything you’d hope water-themed songs would be about. My only complaint? Needs more sea-monsters…
…but really, everything in life could use more sea-monsters, donchathink?
My favourite part is the transition from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah’s “Underwater (You & Me)” to “Sea Ghost” by The Unicorns. It fades out, noisy, all over the place with percussions and harmonies and a chiming guitar, fading, fading, almost dream-like then we are suddenly awakened by the sailor’s whistle pipe. A sailor’s work is never done, is it?
Great mixtape Walzac! Thank you so much! And, my friends, we aren’t dones yet! I got at least ONE MORE mixtape to share with you… BUT, that one’s going to have to wait til the end of the week. I’ll keep it a surprise as the the who’s and the what’s of it all, but let’s just say, it’s sure to be a SCREEEEEAM!!!!!!!
Okay, let’s get to the good stuff, shall we, as…
