Are you overwhelmed with the massive volume of new music that you’re exposed to? Are you constantly forgetting about quality songs because you’re too busy listening to some new group that got a 6.0 rating on Pitchfork and a mention on Brooklyn Vegan (2016 edit: shocked to read this page after ignoring it for 8 years and realizing that Brooklyn Vegan is still a thing)? Do you ever feel like being a music consumer these days is like drinking out of a fire hose?
One night in February 07, I was bored, so I decided to put together a mix of the best songs that reached my iPod in the month of January 07. I had found that I was putting a ton of new music on my iPod each month, and some quality songs were getting lost in the shuffle (ha!) not getting the shine they deserved. I went ahead and did this every month going forward, sending an email out to my friends each time the new monthly “mix” had been completed (and by “mix” I mean a random collection of songs…I’m no DJ). At least a couple of my friends told me they really liked it and that I should start a blog.
So here we are.
Going forward, I’ll be posting a new “mix” each month, just trying to pick out the best 80 minutes of music hitting my iPod that month. Hopefully you’ll find something you like.
Of course, if there’s something you want to let me know about, hit up the comments, or shoot me an email.
