i got this little short play cassette at a yard sale in a bunch of tapes last year. the original owner decide to use it to record some country songs off the radio, my guess is around 1988, which took me back because, you know....old balls.
I’ve been listening to the newest State Champion, Send Flowers, non-stop for about a week now, and I’m not sure I can put into words how good this album is. I first saw them at (what I think was) the release show for their first one, Stale Champaign - opening for Spider Bags and Titus Andronicus, which cost something stupid like $7. I’m missing some of their really early cd-r releases, but the tape, Thanks and Love is a nice little time capsule, and will give me huge bragging rights when State Champion hits it big. #statechampion#sophomorelounge#vinyl#cassette#recordcollection#discography
Hi. I just tried somethin new which is supposed to be digital art which looks sorta pathetic but hey...let's appreciate my attempt lol. Okay no.
So a year ago I'd made my friend a mixtape...a playlist. I burned a couple of songs (swipe left) into a CD which looks nothin like the pathetic drawing I made here. I swear irl it looks more rad. If you read through the titles of the playlist it reads out a message. There were 18 tracks from different genres which included country as well which I'm not a big fan of. But I still had them all on it. I know I know you can take your time to digest my awesomeness. Again... No.
Anyway. I was wondering how many people nowadays even make mixtapes or playlists for people anymore...do people even care anymore? I mean I'd squeal and probably buy that person a whole day's worth of food if that person made me one (sorry I'm poor). Now I haven't received my special playlist yet but if anyone out there is listening...or reading...feel free to make me one.
Actually no. If you think there's someone out there who's special don't forget to make them one. I'm sure it'll feel great. It's a pretty messed up world, people deserve good things once in a while.
If someone playing a drum walks up to you, you should drum with them. If you forgot your drum, dance to the rhythm of your fellow human.
I have a show this Thursday night (1/24, 9pm) at @23_music_room and I’ll be playing protest music all night long. Super excited to be sharing the night with @banqiaoboy and @printednoise_lab. Come on by and drum if you drum and dance if you dance. Much love, folks.
LANY - Malibu Nights // A familiar sound from decades ago, but with a modern twist. Reminiscent of classics like the Human League, Bananarama, and Elvis Costello. Thematically heartbroken.

Tape Feature: Toto IV (1982). Features the hit singles "Africa", "Rosanna" & "I Won't Hold You Back".
"Africa" is one of those tunes I always seem to sing on my way to work. 😋
What's your favorite Toto song? Do you like the recent remake by Weezer?
