Lapsed guitarist, retired music blogger, hoarder of CDs... music has been a big part of my life since forever. A tiny slice of that here.

Mixtapes

I've been making mixtapes for at least 25 years. I come from the Rob Gordon school of mixtape making. These ones are the traces of my former life as a music blogger. (They exist all over the internet in different forms but these links below are for Spotify). I make them every few months, mostly from new acts I'm excited about, with a slight smattering of great stuff from more established artists. Presented here in more-or-less reverse chronological order.
