New Old Mixtape – “Hot Fuzz”

In cleaning some old crap out of my room, I discovered a CD-R wrapped in notebook paper containing an old mix I made a few years ago, which I remember liking but which had somehow disappeared from my computer. It was inspired when I first heard Deerhunter’s “Nothing Ever Happened”, so it must have been some time in 2008. As with the last mix I posted here, I can’t exactly say what ties these songs together, but there is some connective tissue that may only make sense inside of my head. They’re all fairly long — you could even say “jammy” (oh dear I’ve offended the indie gods with that blasphemous word) — and have a sort of ragged or “fuzzy” quality which led me to think of that stupid title in five seconds. Most importantly, some of my all-time favorites are on here (namely, “Nothing Ever Happened”, “The Light”, and “Yellow Country Teeth”). Each and every one is a phenomenal song, all-time favorite or no.

I didn’t feel like going through the trouble of packaging them together, tagging them as an “album”, and uploading them like I did last time, but do please download the mp3s (by right clicking the track titles and doing the old “Save Target As”) and turn them into a playlist on yr compy because, as always, the order is intentional. And feel free to use that “album art” above that I whipped up in 10 minutes, IF THAT’S WHAT YOU’RE INTO.
