Mixtapes are amazing. I love them. I make them all the time. I’ve taken part in a number of mixtape exchanges on a variety of message boards (but mostly on the Radiohead forum, Mortigi Tempo). The first exchange I did on there, I ended up with a mixtape featuring “The Moon” by The Microphones. It got me hooked on both making mixtapes and listening to The Microphones. Not bad going, really.
I have quite a reputation now, for making mixtapes. I make them for whoever asks for one. I’m going to start posting random mixtapes I make here.
Also, as a bonus, to commemorate this first mixtape post, I have upped a mixtape made by famous hands. A few months ago when I ordered Mount Eerie’s No Flashlight from P.W. Elverum & Sun Ltd. I received a mixtape from Phil along with my order. I have no idea what any of the tracks are but there’s a lot on there. 20 tracks, starting with a skit starring Jason Anderson as a magician and leading onto a variety of classical, country and world music — just to name a few.
If anyone can identify any of the tracks, I’d greatly appreciate it.
