This fantastic idea was brought to us by the lovely Joie Fatale from Confessions of a Book Pimp. It’s been doing it’s laps around the blogosphere, and I just had to give it a go!
I went a little nuts, because I couldn’t narrow it down, so I have an A side & B side over on 8 track! Each side runs about 30 minutes, which is actually pretty close to a real mix tape!
//grimes – vanessa
//iamamiwhoami – goods
//austra – spellwork
//purity ring – ungirthed
//MS MR – ashtree lane
//hannah georgas – shortie
//robyn – dancing on my own
//crystal castles ft robert smith – not in love
//the cure – love cats
//dum dum girls – cult of love
//siouxsie & the banshees – christine
//bikini kill – rebel girl
//the murmurs – genius
//of monsters & men – dirty paws
//amy winehouse – back to black
//scarling. – we are the music makers
side A is fairly dance/indie electronic/pop, where side B is more alternative/eighties/riot grrrl.
I had a great time compiling this and really tried to make it 100% true to my blog and it really took me back to the days of creating really good actually mix tapes! (totally showing my age there!)
Hope you enjoy!
