1. I Am The Heart That You Call Home
This mix is about the first day of school, freshmen year of college.
Why It’s Pretentious: Remember when I kept up this blog and it was awesome because you got new music from 2-4 years ago but then I moved into my own house and started a milkshake truck and sort of dropped off the face of the world? DON’T EVEN WORRY ABOUT IT CAUSE I’M BACK.
This is one of my favorite mixes from the past few years. If I play you one of my tapes, it’ll probably be this one because it’s overtly cheerful yet also raises deep questions: Remember when music critics started treating “Ivy League” like a musical genre? Remember when you thought it was okay to put 3 Miles Fisher songs on one mix because you his EP had 4 songs, so you were being selective? Remember when you thought taking the midnight Greyhound to Cincinnati by yourself was a good idea? PROTIP: it’s not.
