50’s/60’s fun and mopey doo wop/brill building girl group songs about being lonely, crying, wanting boys, and not having boys. 
the earnest perfection that is marcie blane’s “why can’t i get a guy” more or less demanded that a cd like this be made eventually. listen // download

a cd i’ve been spinning a lot lately. bleak, synth ridden, indulgently mopey, [mostly] post-punk shit for december’s frigid weekday night drives alone on the highway when your wipers aren’t working

speaking of mixes!! Wired was cool enough to let me make a playlist thing for Station to Station. The mix incorporates a lot of the musical artists involved with the project (Ariel, White Mystery, Eleanor Friedberger, Cat Power„ etc etc) along with some tracks I think make for good traveling music.

i just posted a lot of new mixed CDs on my 8tracks if you wanna check them out maybe or not either way i’m gonna be annoying & talk about them

super quick jap psych/ noise rock/ jam band + TINY (one song) bit of kraut mix – made this for a really neat girl named Henrietta on the train. she had never heard of les rall des before so playing her ‘night of the assassins’ for the first time felt like bringing someone to jesus. tracklisting

quick little minimal synth/ old school analog dance playlist – another one i made for that girl. minimal synth is awesome and essential for contextualizing new school electro/ synth pop like grimes imo, so get into it !! tracklisting

[mostly] 80’s DIY post punk/ osbscuro art punk/ jangly weirdo lo-fi pop stuff – i made this one for a guy i met named Douglas on the train who shares my love of sideprojects related to the Homosexuals. kinda mutant sounds-y if you’re familiar with the blog. quite like this one.  tracklisting 

hellish noisy industrial CD – just made this for fun cause i’ve been listening to a lot of noise & industrial tapes lately. if you’re into einstürzende neubauten or merzbow maybe you’d dig this. some great sampling material really. tracklisting

TWEEMO – put this together for my little brother. stuff that falls somewhere in between Midwest emo and more poppy twee-esque indie rock (i realized after burning it that it gets significantly less twee towards the end though) tracklisting

music that has a ethereal, dreamy, haunting, magic, ambient, romantic, or nostalgic atmosphere. a CD i’ve been falling asleep to for awhile now.

another summer cd because i’m really that annoying.
the soundtrack of late july midnight bike rides down to the white river to get silly drunk on wine coolers you stole from your neighbors garage.
