Guitar is the newest of the mixes and features both electric and acoustic styles. Simple rhythmic guitar hooks and nice sounds. All my favorite guitar wielding bands: The Dead Milkmen, Sex Pistols, R.E.M., ALL and more. Isn’t guitar a strange looking word. I keep thinking it’s spelled wrong.
Summer is here and time keeps passing. As you get old, and I guess that’s what’s happening to me, you start to look back. I’ve never been a fan of looking back. I’ve always tried to look forward. I am approaching my 20th year away form high school and the fact of the matter is this: I still listen to a lot of the same music. Yes, I mix it up now a days. But my go to stuff, the things I listen to over and over are the gems of my past memory. This mixtape, a double disc, is exactly what I loved in high school – way back in the late 80s and dawn of the 90s. Enjoy.
In the midst of all the American Idol madness I’d like to pitch my new Mixtape: Cover Bands. This version has a slew of my favorite covers and some new finds as well. It includes the now, way-over covered Leonard Cohen track Hallelujah. I kept the Rufus Wainwright version on here because it’s still the best version and it was on the Shrek soundtrack, which I just think is funny. It doesn’t say that it’s Rufus, but it is. The art here includes images from Flickr once again: Lubitel 2 by Tokenygaard & Fuzzimo’s Vynil Record Texture.
Mixtape number 3, is themed on music from TV that was once only the domain of select indie music junkies. They have probably written off half of these bands now that they’ve sold their souls to Sony, Nissan, Sprint and the like–but oh well. Sometimes it’s a good thing and introduces you to music you’d never find. Other times, like the Wendy’s spot listed below, it’s just a little creepy. The photo is by Craig A Rodway via Flickr.

Mixtape number 2, with the deceptive title, “DEEP FOOLS”. Read into that if you wanna. The image is from the Peter Jackson, Lord of the Rings movies. Sometimes its just that simple. You can listen with the player below or click through and listen here.
