New Mixtape: Sunglasses

Sunglasses2013 has a been a fairly slow mixtapes year so far. I had published only one but I actually created two more. One of them was titled “Black Box” and it was supposed to be the down-to-earth sequel to the optimistic “How Black Nail Polish Changed My Life“. However, after I completed version 1.0, I uploaded Black Box to my phone and listened to it too many times. Just like¬†relationships¬†and¬†sandwiches, if you don’t change things up or move on ¬†– mixtapes become stale. Sadly, Black Box was no different.

But historically¬†summer¬†has always¬† been a good mixtapes season for me. The art of pop music is so much easier and natural when you can drive around with your car windows rolled down. Even though I haven’t owned a car in years, I¬†remember well that any summer mixtape listening experience¬†will never be complete without the sun in my eyes and the wind in my hair.

This mixtape was also made possible due to my¬†favorite¬†band of the moment – Saturday Looks Good to Me. They have a new album out and it’s great. It’s like Nico teamed up with Belle and Sebastian (with a guest¬†appearance¬†by Damon Albarn). Yes, that good.
