boy oh boy have i been getting a lot of emails, tweets and comments from people hinting that i need to put together another music mix soon. the last one i posted was back in march, and for that i’m sorry – but you see, i have been without a steady internet connection for about 10 weeks (!!) until i finally managed to get internet hooked up in my flat this week. cue: yay. many, many yays.
so i’ve been catching up on what’s been released in the past while, which is always enjoyable. amongst this batch of new tunes is a new passion pit track, which i was really excited for because i LOVED manners – i played that album non-stop when it came out back in 2009. take a walk is quite a different direction for them… i don’t know how i feel about it yet, but i threw it in anyway.
i also posted a couple of these tracks over at Noonday Tune, a collaborative music blog by twitter pal Rowan who has rounded up 9 south african twitter folk to contribute a track a day at noon local time – the perfect accompaniment to the sound of cape town’s noon day gun.
so, what new stuff have you been listening to? i’d love to know.
