Ripped from the heartlines like some variety of romantical Law & Order it's another mix inspired by a girl. Things started well, but they ended...

Well, it just would have been nice to have been told that it'd ended.

I'm somewhat violating mix making convention no. 37 with the four song Laura Veirs suite, but I'd had that album in heavy rotation at the time and it felt like it was directly speaking to my situation. There's maybe seven tracks worth of naive sweetness here, and then lo darkness falls.

Of course I've been sitting on the completed tracklisting for an average number of months (waiting for my lazy butt to be arsed to whip down some artwork to go with it), so we're not exactly talking fresh sentiments here. But sometimes Manager's Special sentiments can be a tasty value proposition none the less.
