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!
