About Me

I've heard it said that location has everything to do with who you are -- for better or worse I'm from Southern New Jersey, USA. It's a constantly maligned place: virtually every entrance and exit to the state has smoke stacks pouring gray detritus into the air, nondescript business parks dot the constant suburbia, the people are loud and aggressive. But for every misconception and eyesore there's a Jersey shore. Or Bruce Springsteen. Yeah...

Mixtapes

February

I went for icy and barren in keeping with the season. It's been brutally cold here in the northeast -- thought some tunes for the season might create some warmth.

The Jeff Garcia Mix

While this has nothing to do with the Philadelphia Eagles' QB, it is somewhat appropriate as the first song is "The Adversary". Also, unwittingly, a lot of songs are about the outdoors, nature, and places other than New Jersey/Philly.

i just returned to the states after appreticing in italy so your mix will be a little late, but don't worry i haven't forgotten about you

To have M.Ward, and the Knife, on the same mix is a beautiful thing. The combination of the two probably centers the universe quite nicely.

I received your TWO mixtapes today and wanted to thank you very much for them. Most of the songs are new to me, and many of the artists are ones I have been meaning to listen to. I especially love Salt Water by Beach House. Thank you!
