Happy Holidays! I’ve got a slew of ‘end of the year list’ music coming your way, but before the lists arrive, it seemed appropriate to drop one more mixtape before 2018 comes to a close. There were heaps of tunes that just missed tracklists of other mixtapes throughout the year and this fall provided a lot of great new music that I couldn’t let get passed by.
Newish songs from Jade Bird, Interpol, and Toro y Moi just missed my top 100 tracks of the year list, but are still worthy of multiple listens. House anthems by me & my toothbrush and Purple Disco Machine also were in heavy rotation over the last two months, but also didn’t make the top 100 cut. Aside from those overlooked gems, Joe Hertler & the Rainbow Seekers new single “Evening Coffee” just dropped (after my list was completed), but there is always hope for next year!
My current favorite of the mixtape happens to be LCD Soundsystem’s cover of “(We Don’t Need This) Facist Groove Thang”. A timely reworking of Heaven 17’s 1980’s britpop anthem that could surely help you dance through whatever government led apocalypse could be in the future.
