hazy dayz

Posted in mixtapes with tags , , , , , , on October 18, 2009 by Kayla

I know I am way behind, as usual, but I’ve finally scraped together a tiny haze mix for the start of fall. and man, it got chilly way too fast.

this one’s small (4 songs), mainly because some of the tracks I wanted to include didn’t sound right when I mixed them together in Audacity. one of these days I’ll actually learn how to properly use it…

download here. it’s great for those rainy days we’ve been having lately when you have three tests next week but you just can’t concentrate and leaving your bed is way too hard. tracklist and comments after the jump.

little love mix

Posted in mixtapes with tags , , , , , , on September 6, 2009 by Kayla

here’s a little mini-podcast. I know it’s fall and not February, but I think fall is a season of love. after all, everyone goes back to school and picks up little schoolgirl/boy crushes on classmates or professors anyway.

so this mix runs the range of love-related emotions from defiance to wistful pining. this also started as a retro mix so it’s a little Motown-y.

and you will notice that “Summer Grof” has made a second appearance but the vacation mini-mix has vanished off zshare and it’s the end of summer and I think it’s relevant. so there. tracklist after the jump.

download the little love mix here.

july mixtape

Posted in mixtapes with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 31, 2009 by Kayla

as promised, here is your July podcast. this one’s pretty groovy, if I do say so myself. I ended up having to rework the whole thing at the last minute but oh well.

also, the whopping one vote in the poll was for “109,” so it ended up on the mix. thank you, one voter.

ok folks, so here’s the dilemma. I’ve finally got a tracklist for the July mixtape BUT I can’t decide between two very good Toro Y Moi songs.

one is vintage Toro Y Moi (circa 2007), dancier, way less fuzzy, and is pretty much absent from the Internet as far as I can tell. I got it from a friend who got it from a friend, etc. way back when. it’s called “Your Skin.” the other is the b-side to the super-hyped “Blessa,” “109.” fuzzier, poppier, and very much current.

simplified: Cut Copy-esque vs. Ariel Pink-esque.

I’ll probably just put “109” up as it fits with the others better but if you insist, maybe I’ll put it on. or both! (my only real qualm is that it may not have been available for free and I don’t want to step on anyone’s toes here)

EDIT: turns out “Your Skin” got re-named to “Left Alone At Night” and was released earlier this year. you can stream it/buy it here.

vacation podcast

Posted in mixtapes with tags , , , , , on July 11, 2009 by Kayla

I’m leaving for vacation tomorrow but I thought I would leave a little gift while I’m gone: a mini-mixtape. it’s only five songs but they are all quite good and nicely vacation-themed. download it at zshare with the link below. tracklist is after the jump.

UPDATE 09/06/09: this podcast has mysteriously vanished from zshare. if you would like a copy, let me know in the comments, otherwise I won’t waste my time uploading it again.

this month, instead of a bunch of links to songs, I’ve put together a podcast. it’s just one big file (runs about 40 minutes) that you can listen to and download at zshare by clicking on the link below. tracks are listed/babbled about after the jump.

mixtape: May

Well it’s officially June so I figured I might as well share some of the tracks I loved in May, (and late April) complete with links to watch/stream and download if I remember where I got things from. thanks (and complaints) for hosting go to their respective sites. they’re not all new but are all pretty good.

MAY 09:
