Friday Mixtape #19 - Shack Up! - mp3

This week's mixtape is another of the foot tapping toe shuffling variety - songs both new and old, that likely sound familiar to many, but also would have a bit of a culty obscure status as well. Summer is cooling off big time, the dark is closing in earlier and earlier. Let's dance with very little clothes while we still can.

No big nostalgic ramble this time, just MUSIC

Friday Mixtape #18 - Keep On Dancing - mp3

This week's mix is called "Keep On Dancing" and pretty much does what it says on the tin. Songs to force you out of your chair, say "I know this one!" and do that embarrassing walk to the only space in the room that isn't overrun with stomping pumps and winklepickers. We start with some brand new electro-fied Swedish pop, moving swiftly to the roller-disco with some freestyle jamz before finding ourselves moving across a dancehall holding hands with that young wan we've been eyeing up for ages.

Friday Mixtape #17 - Feels Like Heaven - mp3

This week, a mellow yet uplifting mix of electronic bleeps and classical strings and harps. Don't ask me why, but these songs prove that somehow blending the unlikely results in some serious heart-swelling, lung filling drama, complete with an 80s triumvirate in honor of the seriously untimely passing of John Hughes, a favorite director of many, including myself. Perfect Friday afternoon music in this little music-heads humble opinion.

State Mix - Talulah Does The Hula mp3

I've got a wedding in Bristol this week, and therefore am not going to be anywhere near a computer for nearly FIVE WHOLE DAYS. Whoa! Awesome I know. Therefore, no mixtape 17 will not be happenin' this week. But fear not, for I have a solution if you have some kind of an addiction to mixtapes of a Friday.

For those of you "in the know" you'll know that I spend a good bit of my time playing in a band, Talulah Does The Hula. This mix was one I actually put together earlier for of all the music which is a bit inspire-y of the kind of music TDTH makes. Do be sure to check out the other mixes they've got there on the site. They're pretty much all way better than the badly mixed one I did.
