Yikes! It’s already early Friday night here on the west coast but as promised, here’s this weeks Mixcast. There’s really no theme this week, just a bunch of great songs. There’s kind of this chilled vibe going through everything, and strong drums are kind of another thing, so maybe you’ll see those elements.
There’s also quite a few new songs, in fact I think everything is really recent except for one song, so if you’re looking for new music, check this one out. I hope you enjoy it and let me know what you guys liked!
Here’s this week’s tracklist:
The Sea Is A Good Place To Think About The Future by Los Campesinos
Leap Year by Port O’Brien
Feel It All Around by Washed Out
Crystalised by XX
Beach Point Pleasant by Ducktails
Hailey by The Wooden Birds
Watch The Waves by Taken By Trees
Island, IS by Volcano Choir
Love by Paul Simon
Bay of Pigs by Destroyer
Well we’re definitely in the throes of summer here in the northern hemisphere, so I thought another mixtape may get everyone excited and the hot weather off their minds. This is kind of the first part of a summer mixtape called I’ll Carry You On, while the second part will be released in about a month or so. This mix has been kicking around for a little bit now, it was originally inspired by a side project of mine that I felt needed some music.
It doesn’t really have a theme, but I feel like it flows together rather well. The songs are new and old, not quite as up to date as the other summer mix is, but this should still make your head bounce. I’d also like to suggest that you listen to this one with headphones on. There are lots of rich sounds in these songs, and even some things I’ve added in myself here and there. I hope you like it and be ready for another mix to drop on August 21st, which is my birthday, so it’s like a birthday present to all of you for being such awesome readers.
I also have a new project that I think I’ll be releasing on Friday that’s related to the mixtapes but an entirely new endeavor altogether. Keep your eyes peeled!
Here’s the track listing:
01 Eulogy by Patrick Wolf
02 Cello Song by The Books & José González

I figured to start out the week right, I’d give you all a new mixtape to listen to, even though it has a bit of a gloomy title. Terrifying Disaster is an oooold mix that I found while completely cleaning out my computer last week. I always thought it was a great mix, but it did need some cleaning up. So I put all the songs back into Garageband and mixed it properly. The mix is slightly darker in tone then I usually do, but that’s kind of the fun of it. You should still be able to blast this in your car without feeling depressed, promise.
As always, the mix is made as one continuous track, not multiple tracks, like a mixtape on a cassette would be. This mix is made to be heard all the way through, and each song is mixed together with the next for a reason. If you want to hear one of the songs on it’s own, check out hypem.com, they should have it for you. Here’s the track listing:
01 Pharaohâ€™s Daughter by The Secret machines
02 Comfortably Numb by Scissor Sisters
03 (This Is) The Dream of Evan and Chan (Safety Scissors Remix) by Dntel
04 Into The Sun by Diplo
05 Loved Despite of Great Faults by Blonde Redhead
06 Strange News From Another Star by Blur
07 The Gloaming (DJ Shadow Remix) by Radiohead
08 Hands Around My Throat by Death in Vegas
09 Little Kids (Ladytron Remix) by Kings of Convenience
10 The Guest by Phantom Planet
I hope you all enjoy it.
They Don’t Pierce The Night | A Kitsune Noir Mixtape

Here’s my second treat for the morning, another new mixtape. This one has been kicking around for a couple months now, but I’ve been trying to stagger the mixes a bit so that each mix gets it’s own attention. It’s called They Don’t Pierce The Night, and is a pretty sentimental mix. It was made for someone that I care deeply for, but it’s very nostalgic at the same time.
There’s also an odd twist to the mix. It’s actually based off of The Velvet Underground’s self titled album from 1969. I tried to match the tone of the album, and as you’ll notice, Pale Blue Eyes is on here as well as If You Rescue Me, a modified version of After Hours used for the film Science of Sleep. As per usual I went a little crazy with the deeper meanings on this album, and hopefully that shows.
Lastly, this is not a holiday album, that one should be done next week as many of you have been asking for one. Sit tight, I promise to get you all something. And with that, I hope you enjoy this sentimental little mixtape I’ve made.

Well, it’s been a couple weeks since the HELLAWEEN mixtape mixed by Punchy, which you guys downloaded over 3,000 times, so I thought I’d treat you all to a fresh one. This time around is a mix by a young up-and-coming DJ from Australia by the name of James Kane, aka Teen Creep. James has been doing a lot of remixes lately, and DJ’s locally around Melbourne, sneaking into clubs and getting kids dancing.
His mix is an eclectic collection of tunes from all over the place, and make for an awesome late night dance party. There are also a couple James’ own remixes on there, so be sure to check those out in particular. As per usual the artwork was done by myself, based off of some photos that James had sent me. Enjoy!
