Subject [fatisflava] pretend this is vinyl.

hi guys,

My mix will be in the mail to you on Monday.

This is a holiday mix I put together with my brother Daniel. We made it on Christmas Day from vinyl records he has lying around his apartment. The idea was that vinyl sound would evoke a few distant times and places, even if you were born after these songs. All the crackles are there, quiet and nostalgic, yearning to warm the cockles of your heart.

The mix is exactly in the order we originally listened to the songs, in a sort of impromptu listening party. He and I both enjoy sitting down and listening to a vinyl record from start to finish, looking over the cover art and liner notes, and sipping on a glass of bourbon. And while I can't promise to recreate that sort of visceral experience with this CD, I hope maybe you'll get the idea.
