Here’s my second treat for the morning, another new mixtape. This one has been kicking around for a couple months now, but I’ve been trying to stagger the mixes a bit so that each mix gets it’s own attention. It’s called They Don’t Pierce The Night, and is a pretty sentimental mix. It was made for someone that I care deeply for, but it’s very nostalgic at the same time.

There’s also an odd twist to the mix. It’s actually based off of The Velvet Underground’s self titled album from 1969. I tried to match the tone of the album, and as you’ll notice, Pale Blue Eyes is on here as well as If You Rescue Me, a modified version of After Hours used for the film Science of Sleep. As per usual I went a little crazy with the deeper meanings on this album, and hopefully that shows.

Lastly, this is not a holiday album, that one should be done next week as many of you have been asking for one. Sit tight, I promise to get you all something. And with that, I hope you enjoy this sentimental little mixtape I’ve made.

    dear bobby, you have no idea how your mixtapes match my life down here in rio de janeiro, brazil. i´m always listen to them at home and on the street and life becomes adorable in a pretty particular way.
    thank you for doing it to kn´s fans!

    I always look forward to the next one, and this mix more than satisfied the wait – along with the Swedish Fish mix, it perfectly matches what I’ve been feeling recently. In that odd, wintry bittersweet way. Thanks!

    (p.s.- I also make seasonal mixtapes for myself and my friends. This last one served as a good inspiration for my winter one- feel free to dl a copy at linked web address)
