April/May 2011: Laughtrack Mixes No. 4 and 5

I’ve had almost no chance to post here since the beginning of April, mostly because I’ve found myself a new full time job. That means I’m writing less in general, but the upshot is that my job is music related, so I’m finding more records and listening to more music, most of which is on LP. I’d like to share everything with you, but until I have a chance to transfer those records to MP3s, I’ll have to build my mixes from CDs and other digital files.

This Laughtrack combines my playlists for the months of April and May and reduces everything to a brief 1 hour and 11 minutes of music. I’ve tried to keep some kind of continuity in the mix, but there’s no easy way to switch from Low to Dr. Octagon or from Autechre to Kyle Bobby Dunn, especially since I’m limiting myself to music I’ve actually listened to more than just once or twice in the last two months.

As always, I’m glad to remove any files upon request.

Thanks for listening!
