JULY ’14 MIX.

2014-08-04 23.05.14

Oh man! This be all nuts and stuff. Holidays are an amazing thing, and so is travelling down to see all those friends and family you left back down there. I actually think I might re-listen to this tape on my flight home. Prolly the correct length too.

Anyway, gosh, mate, enough of my crazy travel exploits (not that crazy, or exploitative even). This here tape is full to the brim of some real maamf faves. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s mid-year and I haven’t done that list that everyone else has done. Maybe it’s the fact that all my old maamf faves actually put out some killer tracks in July. Either way, the tapes a bloody bonza listen k?

A few little mentions though. Our mate Snowy Nasdaq joked that I should call these MiksTapes and then recoiled from that idea suggesting that perhaps I had thought of it already. To be honest Snowy, it did cross my mind early on, but I thought no one would take me seriously. Maybe I’m wrong? On the music front though, the guy is going from excellent to excellent with his one single a month thing. Seriously, the man knows his way around a wonky pop tune.

I also thought that this blog may run the risk of becoming the Laura Jean fanpage. Her new single ‘Don’t Marry the One You Love’, the second off her new self-titled album due out in a couple of weeks, is so much more upbeat sounding than ‘First Love Song’. The name doesn’t suggest that though – it still has that trademark world-weariness that Laura is becoming pretty well known for.

And finally, Flube. To put it simply, when you come across a good remix, it’ll most likely get a run. The new Seekae stuff is nice, but I gotta be honest, it’s taking me a while to get into it proper. There’s something about the whole Alex Cameron singing thing that although works in his super niche solo project, doesn’t resonate as much within the context of a band who have gone some way to define Australian electronic music. Maybe it’s the fact that it makes it a little more accessible, but the Flume remix still stays a little weird. It also hits reasonably hard. And maybe it’s the #clubbanger in it, but I like it over the original.

This month we’re also experimenting with a playlist of the tracks in soundcloud. The only track not on the playlist that is still in the tape is the Straight Arrows tune ‘Don’t Call My Name’. It’s not on soundcloud, and knowing what they’re like with shutting down accounts, I didn’t want to risk uploading it myself. The full tape is still available as a full stream and download though!

FEBRUARY ’14 MIX.

Woah buddy. Coupla days late with this one, but it’s all in your ears now so what you goin on about? Gosh, like it’s every day – “Miks, where is that mixtape?” “Miks I NEED to have that mixtape.” “Miks, mixtape. NOW!”

Nah, not really. I do occasionally have the odd individual waiting for me to post it so they can then go and steal I think 90% of the tracks for their mixtape that’s also their favourite tracks of the month, but apart from Tommy…umm…I mean Sound Doctrine…ah shit…I actually mean a much better music blog than this one, I could do with a little more pleading from all you guyz.

Coz there’s nothing like pleading and desperation.

It’s been a pretty big month for excellent local music!
