33. I’m Only Pretending, You Know
This mix is about when someone destroys your Horcrux and you have to figure out what to do with the remaining parts of your soul and you’re lost but also kind of hopeful.
Why It’s Pretentious: You guys! It’s The Little Bear’s birthday! You should pretty excited about this because a) she’s a lovely lady, b) she’s a fantastic artists, c) she’s playing my house show on Saturday. In her honor, here’s a mix that features “Be Happy,” off her Sexxtape split cassette with PUJOL. It’s my favorite numbered mix, but instead of describing it, here are quotes from my roommate to me to you:
“I listened to your mix. I liked it a lot. But then I listened to it again. And I’m sorry that you were sad.”
“Oh! That mix. There was this transition in there that was so good. I was like, did the song just change? I had no idea.”
PROTIP: THESE ARE THE KINDEST WORDS YOU CAN SAY TO A MIXTAPER.
