Indie Music: Spring Mix Tape 1010

Written by Nick Leitzke

Spring. Rebirth. Rejuvenation. Thawing light at the end of an especially frosty tunnel these past few months. The strength of a good mix comes not from including songs you love but from listening to each song and understanding what needs to come next. A mix has its own language, and language develops in environment. Even in the midst of a bleak winter there remains hope for what comes next. Here are fifteen songs assembled in the glowing darkness of blizzard nights and pondered over while driving through the bland whiteout wonderland of afterward. Enjoy these songs with the knowledge that life is blossoming once again.

I think this might be the Melt-Banana song live. It’s hard to tell, the vocals are way down. But it speaks for itself. Things got WEIRD
