Mixtape 020: Rebel Base Star Fox

Parr

It’s 1130pm now and I’m scrambling to get Mixtape 020 out before the stroke of midnight. Why the rush you ask? No reason apart from me wanting to stick to the deadline I’d set for myself. Writing’s a discipline, and like any discipline, targets must be set, they must be practiced, and then some slight…

WATCHLIST #03: 22 Sep 2014 – 28 Sep 2014

It’s the start of a new week, and I came out from a pretty hectic last one. I didn’t really get a chance to chance across new things, but the stand-outs from last week are definitely Nick Cave releasing the performance of Where The Wild Roses Grow that he did as a duet with Kylie…

WATCHLIST #01: 01 Sep 2014 – 07 Sep 2014

One of the challenges with the MIXTAPES series is that when I get really busy, it is an effort to be on the lookout for new or exciting music. There’s an effort that goes into curating the list, and even doing the layouts and content formatting. I feel like I’ve let my readership down, so…

Mixtape #19.. Like Molasses, Dripping With Fear

This mixtape started all because I found out how amazing Elder is, and I’ve been wanting to do a mixtape that involved my current favourite band of the moment. This week’s mixtape was inspired by the smokey, the sludgy, the sinister and the sexy. If anything, I felt an intense pressure to deliver this mixtape…

Mixtape #18.. Far Above The Hurt, Well Below The Bliss

This mixtape has been sitting on the back burner for at least two months, and so has posting of any form on this blog. I guess being busy is one thing, but sheer laziness and having an undisciplined approach when it comes to writing is another. Writing isn’t my day job, and increasingly, that’s the…

Mixtape #17.. If I’d Known, I Would Never

Man, it’s been a crazy two months, but here I am today, close to the middle of April 2014 with another mixtape. On some level, I wish I could do these more frequently, but sadly, music has been rather stale for me of late. Not that many exciting new sounds that I cared about enough…

Mixtape #16.. Prostate Before The Moon

I’ve been evading the mixtape series because everything about this site was in disarray, but if you bore with the silence, then I’m happy to present the very first mixtape of 2014. Amidst the celebration of the new year, I’ve found myself in a comfortable melancholy where I don’t have to listen to the inane…
