• Hipster Garabe Mixtape: throwback dancing to familiar songs on a sleepy winter day…

    I finally made it!

    If you're curious about the title, that is because I initially decided to make it last sunday, while it was gloomy, sort of raining, but a pretty day. I was listening to music that made me feel good, that makes me smile. I'm hoping it will have the same affect on you. There are a lot of string elements, interesting sounds, throwback/ ballroom/ jazzy, familiar tunes (famous for one reason or another). It sort of evolved into nothing of the title because I wanted what I wanted in here, but I just left it as I had it in my itunes.

    I realize some of these songs are kind of girly, but I am a girl and you can channel your inner girl sometimes! Especially right in time for Valentine's Day. I made it as random as possible, there were probably about 70 tracks I considered so these have been carefully considered and selected for your listening pleasure. I'm hoping you get a kick out of at least one of these tracks, even if you have them already. Enjoy! I hope this works... keep your fingers crossed.

    Oh, and in my mind it doesn't get more garabe and hipster than if you stray from all the "popular" current hipster music and listen to something completely out of left field. I threw in a couple which could be pretty hipster garabe though.
