4 oct. 2012, 7h00m par mikeropologySo I rarely send out mixes anymore (or update journals for that matter). I think it's something to do with "progress" in a technologically digital age. Sharing music used to mean mix tapes. Then it became mix CDs, which in turn became playlists. Now we just stream everything, and if you're the sharing type, you might collaborate on social playlists from within Spotify or subscribe to one of your friends.
Mixes used to bridge the space between individuals. Since most of my social networking accounts are linked and constantly sharing whatever I'm listening to into ever-merging lifestreams, that gap has been eliminated. The fact is, we don't listen to music alone anymore.
Everything I just wrote has nothing to do with this mix. Well, insomuch as the constant state of being technologically "on" slowly chips away at the little things, like mailing letters or creating an actual mix CD.
What's below is actually the only physically crafted mix I sent out this year. …

19 oct. 2009, 22h34m par janthonyMon 5 Oct – School of Seven Bells, warpaint, PHANTOGRAM
Arriving unfashionably late to a packed show at The Troubadour, hoping to at least hear the comforting 60s psychadelic rockabilly of the Magic Wands, I learn they’re not playing tonight. I’ll find out later they backed out because they had toured too much in the past year and a half. Thankfully, I arrive just in time to see warpaint’s set. Knowing School of Seven Bells headlines, I do my best to prepare for dreampop/shoegaze, as it tends not to be my favourite. No one should have to prepare for Warpaint: the fog machine in overdrive should suffice.
Jenny Lee Lindberg’s warm bass driven melody wraps you in a comforting brood, yet the vocals still drive the song. Soon enough, Emily Kokal and Theresa Wayman are dueting from each side of the stage while Lindberg effortlessly sways in rhythm to her strumming bass and Michael Quinn’s drums. Every review of these women tries to come up with a new catch-phrase genre…
