download: deep wave mix tape volume 1


So this blog just turned 2, and to celebrate I’ve got a new feature to share with you. As the monthly mix tapes have proved to be rather popular, I decided to put together a mix of the classic variety.

Whereas the monthly mixes are culled from the content of the blog, this new “deep wave” mix is a collection of vintage new wave, new romantic, post punk and shoegaze that I’ve been revisiting — mostly through dusty vinyl rummaging. Hopefully you’ll be reminded of some old favorites or maybe even discover something new.

If you dig it, count on volume 2 later this year as these mixes become a semi-regular feature. Thanks for your readership and support!

    You had me at Slowdive. “Dagger” still chokes me up. And consider throwing Catherine Wheel some love. “A Flower to Hide” maybe?

    Awesome. I wish the Orphanage didnt have to mix with that Turdbox such a waste of 15 min.
