employment. yay! (:

this mix is--- well, I wouldn't say there was a theme to it so don't go all analytical on the lyrics to find a common ground but there's a definite focus in acoustic guitar work blending into happy synth-pop before calming down again to the folksy guitar strumming again. what can I say? these songs make me feel happy.

some of my favs: -- the perishers's come out of the shade, first aid kit's tiger mountain peasant song & boy & bear's big man

I promised my sister a while ago that I'd make a mix for her-- so here it is! The cover doesn't make much sense since it's an inside joke between us. And I reckon that a majority of you already own at least 80% of the songs listed. This is after all not another exercise in trying to be pretentious/~too cool for school~ but more of an introduction to music for my 13 y/o sister who's just getting into bands like motion city soundtrack and the afters and boys like girls and taking back sunday.

Since there's such a huge gap between this mix and the last, I'm already 75% done with another!

Life, WHAT IS THAT?

graduated! whoo!

I'm not really sure what to do with my life and as a result I don't really know what I was aiming for when making this mix. Inspired by waiting at the airport and watching Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. I'd like to think there's a progression from a sort of calmness to desolation to idk, a dash of crazy? I should shut up now and leave you to it x

some of my favs: -- the bravery's honest mistake, noah and the whale's love of an orchestra, interpol's a time to be small & example's changed the way you kiss me

So technically, I am done with uni \o/ Like, not in a sense of "oh, i'm done with one semester" but more of: HOLY FUCK I AM GOING TO GRADUATE!!! Did a vision lock-off on the project I'm editing and that was the last thing I had to do- Again, *technically* cause that's going onto post-sound before coming back to me to sync&export... but I digress.

ANYWAY, those who know me well know that Thrice = my favourite band in the whole. fucking. world. I was introduced to them by a friend in the beginning of 07 (TRIVIA: First song I listened to? The Artist In The Ambulance) and then my life was changed. Well, okay, not really but I was bordering on depression between the ages of 15-19. Those first two years were UGLY but after listening to this band? It made "situations" more bearable. So I have the band to thank for keeping me sane. I just. really. really. really owe Thrice SO MUCH.

Now that my semester has ended, and that ineedflesh has requested a Thrice mix to try to understand why I love this band so much (I WISH I COULD COUNT OUT THE WAYS I LOVED THEM. It's really unexplainable because the feeling I get when listening to them comes from a place deep inside my wasted soul... they're just so experimental and humble and phenomenal and are truly what the raw essence of music feels like to me #bullshitblabbering)... HERE IT IS!

LASKDJLAKSJDLASKDJASDKASDHKAUSHA LONG AND WINDING COMMENT IS LONG. ONTO THE MUSIC!

some of my favs: god, I love ALL of them, but if I must-- Image of the Invisible, Red Sky, Of Dust & Nations, Child Of Dust & Stare At The Sun

Look and see the sky turn red.
Like blood it covers over me.
And soon the sea shall give up her dead.
We'll raise an empire from the bottom of the sea
- Red Sky

Last two weeks of uni before I graduate in July. Fuck. yeah.

This is VERY DIFFERENT from the other mixes. Starts of mellow, yes (beach boys ♥), but slowly progresses into A LOT of bass-heavy tracks- DUBSTEP: WHOMP WHOMMMMP -need that kick to motivate me through these last few days of crappy ass uni assignments- and that dies off in the end because I like doing that, shuddup. Decided to switch it up to a contrast-y/basic cover this time round; let the colours and text do the talking. Kinda liking it-- but maybe that's only me. Hah.

EDIT: I forgot to list a track *headdesk* between #8- Bend Over, I'll Drive & #10- Smack My Bitch Up is #9- You Wouldn't Know Me by Vexare!!!

some of my favs: art vs. science's heavy night, thrice's the weight. the shackelton's emergency & iron & wine's such great heights.

catch you on the flipside x
