{MIXTAPE} July 2011


Original artwork by Stephen Smith (stop by his first art show if you’re in the Roanoke area 7/22!)

Can you guys believe this is the 70th(!!) edition of the monthly mix here on BTID? To give you an idea of how long I’ve been doing this – a snapshot of the website after posting Vol. 14 & Vol. 33 & Vol. 43 (back when I was more of a ‘true blogger’). 8 years and counting! The first 18 mixes were actually hand-assembled, burned and mailed out to several of my closest musical allies!

This month marks a somewhat special occasion – I have begun mixing the old with the new, as evidenced by the inclusion of classics like Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, Nick Lowe, etc. You’ll also see a hint of broadening ‘genre support’ (Apemen, The Ify Jerry Krusade, Oscar & Martin i.e.). In the beginning of the year I made a commitment to, not only sift through new releases, but relive classic albums as well as branch out into unexplored territories musically. I’m finding the majority of music blogs/websites have become a bit too narrow in their scope (intentionally or not) and I’d like to try and break free from that mold.

But really, thanks to all of you who have taken my opinions and advice to heart over the years. For as much as I love the music I feature – I’ve always had my loyal readers in mind when setting the imaginary deadlines that go along with posting these mixes. Enjoy and please do spread the word!
