winter mix 09
What better way to beat the winter doldrums than to participate in a music swap with other audiophiles around the country? A friend of mine in San Francisco, Amie Leeking, proposed a winter mix cd swap among 6 friends of hers. One mix is new songs we like, and one is old classics/personal favorites. In February, I am receiving 10 mixes from mostly strangers, from NYC to SF to Tennessee, a sure way to both learn about new music, and combat the mid-winter blues that accompany some of us here in Portland, OR. For my mix I'm including songs by Santogold, the Antony, Hercules and Love Affair, the New Bloods, and Chromatics.
