A SCUZZBUCKET FULL OF WONDER: GARAGE SWIM MIXTAPE free download feat. Black Lips, Mikal Cronin, King Khan, Mikal Cronin, etc.
ult Swim just released the full version of their mixtape Garage Swim and it’s a jangly and filthy scuzzbucket full of wonder and basically my favourite thing right now
Today the inside of my cranium resembles a darkened room where I need to keep the shiny ball spinning. An excellent day to turn to the absolutely filthy beatselection of Tim Peters, part of Project Ü, in his newest
28:28 Mix by Tim Peters on Mixcloud

I took the liberty of interpreting ‘for professional use only’ as: ‘blast this on high volume in the office building since I’m the only one here on a Sunday’. Araab made this one a mixtape to last, too: crazy-face inducing trap bangers, classics like ‘street knock’, easy vibes, bouncy beats begging for a vocal mix: you name it, it’s on here.

It’s drop day! “Oolala, Mazeltov, what can I say?”
Le1f takes the lead in New York club rap with his own particular brand of gusto and guffow-inducing lyrics on the follow-up to “Dark York”: “Fly Zone”. The beats are .. well … fly … and I love it that in 2013 I can download a solid hiphop mixtape of an MC that pronounces “soft” as “sowft” and hands me hooks like “get your bunz up” to compliment my hefty collection of “get your gunz up” tracks.
So instead of scratching the surface with the weekly mixtapes, from now on I’m digging deeper and serving up a video related to all tracks on the mixtape. If you like, you can just listen to the tape. You’ll be done in less than half an hour. Or you can disappear into the infinitely large pool of moving images that lies beneath it. It depends how your life is timed, I suppose.
Chromatics’ Johnny Jewel just posted the perfect soundtrack to the soggy excuse for snow that’s halfheartedly sloshing against my window right now.
The weekly KNOTORYUS mixtape: ten songs on Spotify, mostly themed. This week: ten songs used on runways for spring / summer 2013 feat. Vivaldi recomposed by Max Richter, the Archies, Chromatics, Junior Kimbrough, Planningtorock, Fatima Al Qadiri, Chromatics, Young Marble Giants and Tame Impala.
I’ll add the ‘where have they used this’ list to the tracklist as soon as I come out of hiding for the weekend, promise.
