This is a mix I made for my friend Maria, who once again eliminated all doubts about the fact that she is the coolest person ever by sending me a bunch of chestnuts in the mail last week. (Yes, there is a story about why she would send chestnuts halfway across Europe, but for our purposes here we can just summarise it by saying that she is awesome.) After some careful consideration about how to best retaliate, I came up with the most obvious idea ever: to make her another mix CD. So this is the kind of mix that would (and, as a matter of fact, does) work well as a soundtrack to roasting and eating chestnuts on an autumn evening - that is, mostly very quiet and folky stuff. I do believe that I have reached my quota of Prayers and Tears songs to be included on mixes for this year already, but I'm just too fond of the way the first three songs go together to keep it off - if you catch me sneaking in any of their songs again though, please call me out on it. What you see below, by the way, is obviously not a cover artwork in the sense of something you print out and put into a jewel case, but rather a cardboard box I made out of a recycled conference map - printed cardboard, a Velcro fastener, brown wrapping paper and some glue (inside, the CD is tucked away in a plain paper sleeve). I give it about a week until it falls apart.

well, make that a "what you might see below at some point, if the site ever decides to work properly again", I guess.
Kingsbury Manx and Cass McCombs are excellent.
