Yes, I Love Technology

Here's the thing.  I'm trying to get fancy.  I've been working creating Spotify playlists to go ahead and move myself, and this blog, into the 21st Century.  Obviously that has created a bit of a hiccup, and coupled with the massive amount of awesome music released in the last few months, I'm a bit overwhelmed.

In the time being, you can listen to my public playlists on Spotify! Here's a random spattering of things I'm listening to right now, and soon I will have a more organized monthly list as has been done in the past.  Gotta keep up with technology... but part of me still wants to make a mix tape.

Oh and here's my Spotify profile: [creepy stalk me on Spotify]

Someone's Gotta Help Me Dig - February 2012

It turns out the last few mixes I've done have been while I was asleep at the computer.  The namesake for this mix comes from my current favorite song, Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings by Father John Misty, which is not actually on this mix but will be on the March mix.  Last month I'm pretty sure I put an Elite Gymnastics song on the list that's appeared in past mixes.  That said, I think the title of this mix is appropriate given my mistakes.

4.  We Bros - Wu Lyf
5.  Lights and Music - Cut Copy
