p&c podcast: no. 53

53 is special to me. This particular mix represents a certain attention to getting back in a regular swing of music curation. This little music space used to be a precious baby. Yes, times were different. The music blogosphere played an important part in creating buzz. Spotify didn’t exist. I spent hours at night here writing into the void and making mixes. The mixes have been a constant–but some years, I barely made one or two.

I’d like to express here, in this space, that I’ve continued to listen, go to gigs, and generally obsess over tunes. I just haven’t always expressed it here. 53 is an homage to something that’s always existed and hopefully represents a rebirth, of sorts. As the Dirty Projectors track on the mix proclaims, “she’s a break-thru.”

So, she’s a break-thru. This 53. It features a lot of tracks I’ve been listening to on rotation–and like I’ve been doing of late, a mix of new, new, and older, old. Everything from Porches and Jelani Aryeh to The English Beat and LCD Soundsystem. There is Girl in Red, Rostam, and Fannypack–which always reminds me of Jess George and our college radio gig Hot Garbage on WTBU, where we liked to play Fannypack tracks like “Camel toe” in the graveyard slot. Tracks like that are dusty, vintage relics now. We were, So Stylistic.

Rigamarole, of course, includes that the podcast is available for streaming and download at mixcloud. And read all about, or wander through past episodes, over here.

Enjoy this. It’s the summer jams.
