A MIXTAPE

I’ve spent the day making a mixtape for everyone who is likewise staying in at the moment. There are a lot people sharing tips about music or movies right now, mostly focusing on the literal themes of disease and anxiety. So instead we’ll go the Orange Juice way. Just as Edwyn Collins could have named his group Puke or something more contemporary, this is a mixtape about staying home – because you want to. Staying in bed, sleeping in, sitting on the couch or just being alone. “It’s the End of the World As We Know It (and I Feel Fine)” is a song on R.E.M.’s great Document of 1987. This is also a document, of 2020. I’ve been watching a lot of live footage of R.E.M. from the 80s recently, as well as Mazzy Star and Violent Femmes. So I made an old-school mixtape, including some tracks that probably aren’t online.

If you find something you like, please go to bandcamp and buy some music – preferably on Friday, which will help the artists out in this difficult time.
