Is the mix tape done? I guess in the phisical sense it is, but digitally they are going strong. There are a number of artists that have put out mixtapes and I love the idea. The thing that I love about the mixtape is that it is hard to skip a song and normally that means that you listen to the entire tape as it was intended to be listened to. I guess that works for all tapes in general. I know personally that I have made a small production line of mix tapes.
Beau’s has decided to release a summer mixtape for 2013 and you can download it here no charge, you don’t even have to put in your contact information! Seriously cool Beau’s seriously!
I like that you can download the tracks individually, but it would have been fun if they had included two 45 minute mixes (side one and side 2) and added some fun They Might Be Giants short songs to fill in the needed space! I did this once with a Spirit of the West tape that I bought on eBay. It is their first release (out of print and hard to get) and with the death of my tape player I digitized it, both by track and as a complete tape… I still like the complete tape better.
All great tunes to drink a brew too.
