Magicistragic Mix for December

I’m generally a humble fellow, but I kind of think this one might be the best one yet. It’s an eclectic melange of styles. That’s just a fancy way of saying that I slapped a bunch of random shit together on here and somehow it all made perfect sense when I was finished. You’ve got cajun stompers, Colombian psych-pop, Simple Minds going bananas before John Hughes rang, sloppy and strident punk and a finale that makes a flute and harp seem like the most sublime pairing. This goes out to an old friend, Robert Craig, who is celebrating a birthday today and should be playing this at Vinnie Van Go Go’s in Savannah when he next gets his ass to work. A secondary shout out to everyone who will play this in their groove chambers, man caves or whatever gender neutral term you can craft for a place where good souls go to commune with a good album and a glass full of the concoction of their choosing.
