For this week’s Mixcast I asked my Twitter friends for theme suggestions, as my brain wasn’t working properly at the time. I got a lot off great responses (the most popular was cover songs) but one caught my creativity the most. It was from @iptydafu who suggested: “Build to Look Back” Love lost to the future.”
I don’t exactly know what they meant by that, but I interpreted it as man who’s lost the woman he loves in a time-traveling accident. I know, I’m weird. So what became of that was a tripped out love album filled with space-y sounding jams and nods to the future. There are fast, guitar driven songs, there are quiet, thoughtful ones, and pretty much everything in between. Some songs were used in the background as filler, some aren’t even full songs, and most of the time you probably won’t even know when a song transitions from one to another.
I should also mention this is a mini-mix. It’s 35 minutes of straight music, no talking, I didn’t want to ruin the flow of it all. I think one of my favorite parts is the transition between Dert Is Full of Love and A Guitar and a Heart, when I throw in a random ass sample that some of you may recognize. I was even able to throw in some Postal Service, which I never thought I’d be able to do, but I think it finishes things off nicely.
And for those who are curious, the covers are made up of the following:
– A woman using a loom.
– Marble quarry.
– Sea creature.
I think you’ll really enjoy this mixtape, it definitely has a little something for everyone.
