Post CMJ Wrapup Mix

It was so great to see so many of you last week at CMJ and see wonderful shows by APTBS Total Slacker during CMJ.

If you’ve ever liked one of my mixes, you’re going to be psyched about this one. I had a really hard time cutting the 51st song so I know this one is 50 amazing songs, all released this year (that song turned out to be by How to Dress Well and it just somehow didn’t fit).

I’ve been working on this mix since July and was able to finish it off with some of the amazing bands from CMJ including:

Aurora, Porches, Kevin Morby, Little May, Adult Jazz, Immigrant Union, Bright Light Social Hour, Weyes Blood, and last but not least Peter Mathew Bauer, whose song I Was Born in an Ashram deserves a special mention.

Zack Mexico introduced me to Peter, former Walkmen member, whose new album is about his experiences growing up in an ashram called Siddha Yoga, where I spent large parts of my childhood. Peter and I were able to meet up during a chaotic moment at Pianos during CMJ and discuss our experience and you’ll hear his wonderful song, “I Was Born In An Ashram”, track 9 on this mix. The whole album, Liberation!, is awesome.

De Lux (Los Angeles), who were on my last two mixes, are playing at Pianos on Saturday November 8 with the always excellent Roadside Graves, Don’t miss them.

I, however, am off to Grand Cayman next Friday and this will be my soundtrack. I hope you enjoy it. LETS GO GIANTS!!!

Here’s a link to download the mix:

https://www.hightail.com/download/UlRTb3BOOW5veE9FTmNUQw

Here are instructions about how to open it so that its in the correct order:
1. A folder will download to your computer with a folder of mp3s and a text file which has the mix file inside it. Move the folder of mp3s into your library, or into the iTunes Icon in the dock menu.
2. After the mix has downloaded,  go to File in your Itunes menu.  Then choose Library and you’ll see import playlist.
Find the mix file on your computer and choose it.  It will then make a playlist with the order I intended that you can put on your ipod, etc.
