JANUARY ’15 MIX.

2015-02-14 23.18.29 HDR-1 Oh yeah, new year, same old lazy habits.

New year, same old excellent monthly mixtapes tho, so, you ain’t gonna get all complainy on me now are ya??

I think what I like the most about this tape, especially it being the January tape released some three weeks into February and all, is what it captures in new starts. None of this music sounds ‘new’, as in different to the music released up until the 31st of December 2014. But it’s the constant in the my ever changing scenery.

I got a notification thingy from wordpress a couple of days ago saying “Happy Anniversary!’ and informed me that I registered my account  some 6 years ago. Maamf as it currently stands hasn’t been kicking around for that long (full, albeit brief history lesson here), but it acted as a nice little reminder for me in what has been important to me over the last 6 years. Writing and exploring my tastes is something I really enjoy doing – it’s something I’ve been doing in a full time capacity for two and a bit years now, albeit about other people’s tastes.

I’ve thought about giving up maamf, or changing it to just a mixtape site maybe, or just taking a back seat on it for a while. Even with Adam coming on board a year ago, and of course taking into consideration his manic life, it has at times felt like the only option.

On the other hand, I’ve also had some rather big plans for maamf – I’ve thought about introducing interviews, a more formal music writing section documenting the different scenes happening across Australia, doing a full redesign with a new (and better logo), finally buying the domain name so we’re not slaves to the wordpress corporation, and even starting a podcast.

What I hope is that all these things will start, at some point. What I know though is that for now, and potentially for the next 12 months or so, this little site will be the same sporadic weird insight into two new music loving nerds. Maamf still exists because I can’t not listen to new Australian music. It is my one constant.

Wank over (nah, actually, you prolly didn’t read the above overly ejaculatory ego fest. you just here for the music right? wouldn’t blame ya, what with this being a fucking good tape and all).

BEST OF 2013 – TRACKS

2014-01-06 17.06.23Ok, so here we go. This thing is finally up.

I could go on about my year and how it’s been hard man, but this kid here is finding himself a little resolutionary so I is gonna stop with that ‘ahhhh phd’s are hard and everything else has suffered as a result’ line. This here is pretty simple. Got streams of all the tracks as well as a bloody mixtape with all of them in it n shit.

The tracks below are definitely not in any kind of order, that would be too hard. But, they are the tunes that received a hell of a lot of plays by both myself and you guys. So that’s kinda cool.

Freakin’ enjoy it you guys.

OCTOBER ’13 MIX.

2013-11-05 17.18.08

So I dunno what a dog has to do with October. Or this mixtape. There’s not even a song that mentions a dog. But he’s a cute pooch (yeah, that’s right, I said a fluffy toy was cute, and I also called it a ‘he’. Well, actually, his name is Fang and he’s the raddest and, strangely, the quietest dog I think me or my housemates have ever had, but doge’s be kool homie. k? even stuffed ones).

But, anyway, the music? Yeah, well, October has been solid. Some excellent album and EP releases as well as some really excellent one-off singles. Too many (13 to be precise) to list off right now, but man, get this bloody thing inta ya.

MARCH ’13 MIX.

march13mixtape

Bit of a lacklustre month from this side in terms of posting, but man, I’m glad I get the opportunity to put all the ace songs for the month that I didn’t write about into this mixtape.

Some real summery vibes in for March – and on the most part up here it’s been pretty summery (win win).

Of course all these tracks are standouts, but if I can make a few mentions – the Camperdown & Out record is really really great. So is the Dick Diver album. And then of course anything from Lindsay Tuc is ace – that dude is your deep house wet dream. The new project from Tim Shiel (Faux Pas), Telling looks heaps promising too. And finally, man, that new Courtney Barnett track is absolutely golden – one of my faves of the year for sure.

Without further ado though, below are my fave for march.

COURTNEY BARNETT.

As a track, this has been kicking around for a little while. And, so has the clip for that matter. But you know what? Better late than never I reckon.

Great clip that suits a really great track. If some widescreen suburban push bike gangs are your thing, then Courtney Barnett‘s History Eraser is probably gonna be your kind of thing.
