i’ve said it before, & i’ll say it again: i love mix tapes.

you can define a day, a trip, a mood.  i love making mixes for others.  i’ve spent many, many hours pouring over the order of songs.  because they have to be juuuust right.  trust.  but it’s even more of a delight when someone makes it for you.

lately, my roommate has been awesome & given me 3 mixes.  and i’ve been meaning to make one for him.  but the thing is, he’s much more up on the new jams & i don’t have anything in ye ole music library that he hasn’t already heard.

tonight, i decided to change this.  tonight, i was going to find some new jams on my own.  tonight, i was going to make an amazing summer mix full of sun drenched tunes and night-time grooves.

tonight i went down a musical rabbit hole.

  2. most wanted/ cults
