Mixtapes

November 2014

Some moody stuff with intermittent rowdiness.

November 2008

Some of these songs pop up again on my December mix and my 2008 favorites. And again, SXSW 2008 and lots of listening to KCRW are to blame for more than a few of the selections. Some interesting cover tunes too.

Aug07Mix

Summer fades. Here's one last soundtrack to celebrate the bright season.

July07Mix

Just some good old (and new) summertime rock and roll.

June07Mix

A few of my favorite windows-down, late-night driving songs to get you ready for your summer roadtrip.

May07Mix

From alt-country to rock and blues and back again.

Sorry so slow with the review! How did you manage to put together so many songs that start with "A" together, and still make it sound good? I liked a lot of the older stuff on the mix, overall good deal, sir, good deal! If you'd ever like to swap mixes, let me know and I'm up for it!
