I've got a brave ear.

About Me

I'm twenty eight, male, single, caucasian, internationally backgrounded, and live on Boston's North Shore. I've been a helpless record geek since about the age of thirteen. I've got too many records and too many books and see too many movies and am too emotionally invested in all of them. I enjoy cats, rainy days and uh, is this supposed to read like a personal ad, or not?

Favorite Songs

Favorite Artists

I've been a helpless record geek since about the age of thirteen. I've got too many records and too many books and see too many movies and am too emotionally invested in all of them. As far as music goes, I dig a wide variety of sounds across the American and European pop spectrum. I grew up on classic rock, American hardcore, sixties freakout psych and cannonical indie, but dig everything from ambient to country to techno sounds and a whole lot in beween these days. I like to think that I've got adventurous ears, but there's so much out there to listen to that it's both overwhelming and exciting. I'm sure you know what I mean.

Favorite Albums

Spacemen 3's "The Perfect Prescription" and "Playing with Fire; Tom Waits' "Bone Machine" and "Rain Dogs"; Jane's Addictions' "Ritual de lo Habitual; Kraftwerk's "Computer World"; Aphex Twin's "Selected Ambient Works Vol. 1"; DJ Shadow's "Entroducing..."; Iron and Wine's "The Creek Drank the Cradle"; Massive Attack's "Mezzanine" and "Blue Lines"; Stars of the Lid "The Tired Sounds of the Stars of the Lid"; the Vaselines "The Way of the Vaselines"; Pavement's "Slanted and Enchanted"; Pink Floyd's "Piper at the Gates of Dawn"; X's "Los Angeles"; Mission of Burma's "Vs."; Modest Mouse's "The Lonely Crowded West"; Mirah's "Advisory Committee"; Wire's "Pink Flag"; Johnny Cash's "Live at Folsom Prison"; Slint's "Spiderland"; Mudhoney's "Superfuzz Bigmuff plus Early Singles"; The Neutral Milk Hotel's "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea"; Boards of Canada's "Geogaddi"; Blackalicous's "NIA"; Sam Cooke's "Portrait of a Legend"; Low's "Long Division"; Codeine's "Frigid Stars" Galaxie 500's "The Portable Galaxie 500"; The DFA's "DFA Compilation #2"; The Monorchid's "Let them Eat the Monrochid"; Ellen Alien and Apparat's "Orchestra of Bubbles"; Orbital's "Oribital II"; Joy Divison's "Permanent" (I like the re- masters); Trojan Records' recent series of compilations; Slowdive's "Soulvaki"; The Orb's "Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld" and many more. You get the picture.

Recent Concerts

I don't go to too many concerts. But I've got Iron and Wine and maybe the Clientele coming up, and saw the Slint reunion and Juan MacLean in the last year. Good stuff.

Crying won't help you, praying won't do you no good - you've got 'upes asaru' for September.


Andrew, this is to let you know that I hope to get your May mix in the mail by the end of this week. I apologize for the delay and hope that you will find it worth the wait.


hey Andrew - thanks for the January mix and the cover letter, that was real nice. I don't get many letters with my mixes. So far it's been stuck in the car on a few cycles. A good sign. if it makes you feel better too, there were/are 3 bands/artists in it that I have never heard of! thanksthanks. I enjioyed it a alot, and it's good to know there's IMP'ers out there like you making the effort. keep it up. MxBx


Got thhe Dec. mix and listened to half of it last night. Sounds good! No worries about the lateness I didn't send my Dec mix til Jan. 7. Already sent my Jan one though in an effort to get back to being more prompt with these. Happy New Year!


12/7: double CD went out in today's mail


12/2: Hey, I'm your November submitter. Had a hard drive crash and running a little late. Should be ready within a week for mailing. Sorry for the delay.


Never fear, March '09 is on its way as soon as I drop it in the closest mailbox.


Hi Andrew, Your January 09 will be a little late. I'm sorry but it's just about to go in the mail. Thanks, Thomas

The Ealing Collective

Hello Andrew from the Ealing Collective. Your June Mixtape was in the post to you over two weeks ago now so hopefully it should be with you by now. Hope you like it, or even just some of it - it's a real mixed bag this month!! Let us know what you think.


I think I have you for March. I have the mixtape done but I've been busy & have not put it in the mail yet. Just wanted to let you know it might be a bit late but I have it & will get it to you as soon as possible! My deepest apologies, sir. Veronica.


Thanks a lot for the mix, Andrew, got it in the post yesterday. Good to hear some Yo La Tengo! Cheers, Sarah x
