So it’s been, uh, some time since I last posted a mix for you guys.  Like, six months, almost.  What a jerk I am!

Anyway, since the last time I posted a mix, file sharing service drop.io was bought out by Facebook and they ceased to exist on their own. So I went back to Fileden, which I suppose is fine enough, because there are a ton of ads but they’re pretty much all on my end and you don’t have to deal with them. Let me know if you’ve got any problems downloading, though, or if you have any better suggestions for ways I should be sharing.

By the way, I’m also now posting all the songs in one big zip file, just for the sake of saving a little bit of time. If you think that’s a bad idea and prefer that the songs be downloadable individually, let me know that, too.

A word or two about this mix:

It’s kind of slow! I’m not toally sure why–maybe just because I’m in my ultra-reflective New Year’s phase–but this is a very low-energy mix comprised, for the most part, of stuff I liked when I was nineteen. I DJed my boyfriend’s New Year’s Eve party, and at the last minute I whipped out this dusty old 256-CD wallet that is full of unmarked party mixes from eight years ago, mixes I made for boys I had crushes on, and compilations of rarities from when I installed my first CD drive back in 2001. So most of these songs are pretty old. I mean, that Koobas song dates back to 1967, and the Francoise Hardy and Sandie Shaw songs aren’t much more recent. But I mean I don’t think any of them entered my personal collection later than, oh, 2004, maybe.

And, as always, if you like the songs, you should go buy them.  Preferably in a physical format from real people that work in an actual store.  If you can.
