It has been ages since I last posted a playlist, hasn’t it? It doesn’t mean I haven’t made any since my Valentine’s day playlist for tortured souls, I just haven’t been in the right mood to post them, but here is one. Somebody (who puts out great records that you should buy) made me an awesome playlist not long ago. I have been listening to it a lot and found about some great bands thanks to it, so I was reminded of the power of the mixtape and thought I’d share my latest with you. I know it’s already May and I’m supposed to be making summer mixes, but I felt like something calm and slightly melancholic, so I’m defying the norm. I’m sure a pop-punk summer playlist will follow soon.
The download includes a .pdf file with the cover that you can just print, fold and insert into a plastic sleeve. I’ve also added it to 8tracks for those who want to listen first. As usual, if you like the artists buy the records, go to their shows and buy them Jägermeister shots, they’re all rad.
