Comment:

05.12.08-for trace, the recipient of many mixes in the past. the mix is in honor of her birthday on may 1. this theme kind of snuck up on me. trace is the sort of person who likes her music really happy or really sad. while i don't think this does justice to either, leaning toward sad but not exclusively so, it has the feeling of a complex - in more than one sense. living in an apartment can make one feel confined and isolated, both physically and psychologically. that's the impression i got, don't ask me how, after putting these tracks together. let me know what you think, whether you happen to reside in an apartment or not. before i forget, though: thanks to josh p for hipping me to andrew bird, to joegillis for winterpills, to my girlfriend for jim noir and bob parins (and smog), to my scandinavian-themed radio show for PYT, to the twisted branch tea bazaar for paleo, because i saw him play there.

Wonderful stuff. Love that C.O cover. Been listening to the Jim album a lot recently. And the Bon Iver is beautiful. Fine mix..

Devendra Banhart puts me to sleep but there's quite a lot otherwise to like on this mix. Would be interesting to hear it.

I love this mix! The idea and the execution. That Octopus Project song, the Smog song, and oh oh oh Bon Iver. Yay.
