Since I haven’t written about music much lately, I decided that the best thing to do is piece together a mixtape! However, that’s not very exciting in the age of the blogosphere—I could just throw a bunch of songs into a folder, provide a suggested order, and call it a day—so I took another route.
In homage to an art that probably officially died away before I was born, I recorded the songs into two different “sides” (I know I know this is sheer insanity just work with me here) with hand-made crossfading and order selection by yours truly. Yeah, I know, a real labor of love. A bunch of new songs and a couple of old songs, some songs that have been on Wampoholic and others that have yet to grace this tumblr.
I guess reading Chuck Klosterman finally got to me! HAY~UCK

- I saw Manchester Orchestra at the Paste Festival in 2006, never ever thinking they would get famous. Now they’re blowing up! So kyuuute!
- I cut out the very end of “Up Up and Away,” but that brake effect is not me.
- The original “Pick Up The Phone” is soooooo good even though I love the remix I posted a few months ago.
