SEVEN DEADLY SPINS: 2/25/13 – 3/3/13

SEVEN DEADLY SPINS: ARKANSAS STYLE. Conveniently, I spent this week mostly listening to last week’s Seven Deadly Spins, so you’re getting two spins for the price of one. (Or something like that.) Thanks to Rilo Kiley’s new single “Let Me Back In,” I rediscovered More Adventurous and have been playing it obsessively. I was in eighth […]

SEVEN DEADLY SPINS: 1/28/13 – 2/3/13

Long time, no spin! For a while, I’d been feeling like nothing new was coming out in music that was really getting me excited. And then came Sundance AKA a whole week of not listening to music obsessively. When I got back on record release day (or what other people refer to as Tuesday), I […]

PRETENTIOUS MIXTAPES: Jingle Mint Twist (XMAS 2012)

WHY IT’S PRETENTIOUS: So I have two Christmas traditions: 1) fall ill, 2) make Christmas mix. The flu is this year’s culprit RE: the first Christmas tradition, which is why I’m posting this at 7 PM instead of like, sometime during the day. This year’s mix started off as a tribute to Nashville, with a lot […]
