As promised at the bottom of my first Albums of the Year post, I have finally completed a mixtape with [mostly] 2008 tracks. (I added one not realizing it was from 2006, but it fit too well to be excised.) I really like the tracklist, but the transitions between songs can be a little rough. I would have taken more time to iron things out, but then this might not ever get posted.
Download it here, or stream it. It’s about an hour long and about 100mb. The image above is the “album” art for the mix–a picture of my adorable daughter and my lovely wife taken while we shopped for a Christmas tree (original image here). The font is Anivers. MOON CITIES is my musical alter ego. The tracklist is below the jump and in the ‘lyrics’ portion of the id3 tag, but I highly recommend that you listen to the mixtape before looking at the tracklist because surprises are fun.
If you’re a rights holder to any of the music contained in the mixtape and would like me to take it down, please let me know.
