spring 2

alright so, if you haven't noticed yet, it is nice out. and if you still haven't noticed, i'm loving it. honestly, maybe i'm just being overly eccentric this year but i feel as though my general quality of life has been proving ever since the start of march. good things are happening people.

and i know, i know, i live in detroit and detroit is in michigan so all of us michiganders are pissy and old and jaded and jobless and yada yada, so don't worry, i haven't forgotten that but still i'm happy. let me be happy.

plus, i'm on spring break right now. for anyone that doesn't know, i'm a college student, so on top of being poor due to the economy and due to michigan, i'm also poor due to college. and shit, i am poor poor poor. but it's fine. i didn't get to really go anywhere for my spring break but whatever. i've been enjoying it thus far, because the weather has been nicer and i've been able to run outside and wear sunglasses and drive around with my sun roof open. i'm a happy dude.

so to share my happiness with you, i have another VERY lengthy mix. it's actually a 3 parter. but it's a good 3 parter. what we have here, people, is essentially, THREE DIFFERENT mixes. all with heavy relation to spring. basically, these songs make me feel green and wonderful. these tunes put SPRING into my step. eh?

side note, has anyone seen remember me yet? yes, that is the new movie with robert pattinson. but if you are scoffing right now, then check yourself. don't judge a book by it's cover. go see remember me. seriously. you would be surprised, and if you come out of the theatre after having seen "remember me" and you didn't like it, then you can punch me i guess.

and to add to that, the music for that movie is incredible. the actors really deliver, mainly pattinson, who proves he has looks, style and skill. plus the girl is really hot. honestly, i loved remember me. so go see it. and the music is amazing, which is what i'm all about. the sound track is pretty damn solid, and a couple of my songs on these mixes are correlated with/from the movie.

and another thing: for those of you who don't know, indie rock lost a hero about a week ago. mark linkous was the frontman and basically the main dude from the band called sparklehorse. sparklehorse is a more than solid band that has been delivering more than solid music for years and years. and ironically, (you will know why when/if you see the movie; it is pretty damn sad) there was a sparklehorse song on the "remember me" soundtrack, and it's a damn good song. so there is that sparklehorse song and another one that i like that can be found throughout these three spring mixes, in honor of mr. mark linkous.

also, another side note about these mixes; there is lots of guitar! i know it's a crazy concept because of all these electronic and lo fi and glo fi and chill wave artists popping up all over the place and because i love all of them so much and post a bunch of there tracks, and there are some chillgaze (chill wave + shoe gaze = my new favorite genre) tracks on here, but there is a lot of guitar. most notably in newer bands like smith westerns, foals, fair ohs, ps i love you and happy birthday. so that's cool right? foals are very present in this mix, they really make me think of spring. foals new single is on here, and it's incredible.

alright, enough of that. i'm not going to ramble on too much about these mixes, other than these few details:

the first mix is essentially a bunch of newer songs i've been really digging this spring

the second mix is a bunch of my classics that remind me of warm weather from years past

the third mix is some new some old, but all the songs are great spring songs

so either way, you are getting a shitload of songs here. i'm hoping i'm not overloading anyone, feel free to comment and complain or compliment or anything of the sort. or even just say hi. if anyone reads that this is... just kidding!! it's spring, i'm happy!

seriously though, spring 2010, in 3 parts. enjoy.
