I’ve got a really awesome Mixcast this week, I’m really excited to see what you think. I had previously mentioned on my Twitter that it would be about criminals, though I think officially it would based around degenerates, people who might not be quite so on the up and up. It’s definitely not a dark album, that’s kind of the funny thing. The beginning is definitely upbeat and peppy, though some of the lyrics might be a bit dark, but that’s kind of the point. This was a fun mix to put together, even if it was a bit of a challenge.
I’d also like to say that the Devendra Banhart track is on here because wizards are definitely degenerates, I mean look at Dumbledore or Gandalf, those dudes were totally seedy.
