Stumbled across an interesting site today for making mixtapes. It’s called Muxtape.com and it’s a pretty straightforward way to put together a set of tracks online that can be played back from any computer. The interface is a bit cumbersome (you can only upload one song at a time so it takes a little while) but it’s easy to follow and has that clean American Apparel aesthetic that’s so popular with the kids these days. Feeling inspired I put together a little mix based on my favorite genre of music of all time: marginal hits by semi-famous bands from the mid-90’s. More blips-on-the-radar than bonafied one-hit wonders, these songs were my favorite back in the day when I used to blast the 107.7 The End and rock the cassette player and the puffy headphones to class. Check it out at http://sinkorschwim.muxtape.com/ if you’re feeling nostalgic.
