Listen in Silence XXI

cassette30082013

For your listening pleasure, here’s my latest compilation/mixtape that I created a week or so ago.  All the links are to their respective YouTube visuals and will open in a separate window.

On a side note, I’m greatly amused that I’m still using a mixtape name that I created way back in the spring of 1988.  I usually used the LiS title for ‘favorite poppy alternative songs’ mixtapes (whereas Walk in Silence was used for ‘favorite moody alternative songs’).  There was a stretch there in the early 00s when I used a different title and the mixes were more varied (this would be the Re:Defined mixes).  Hey, if the titles still fit, might as well keep using them, right?
