Somehow I’ve made it five years without giving up on this ramshackle miss-mosh of reviews. I came close to scrubbing this site clean on numerous occasions, but something keeps me doing this now and again. Much love and appreciation to all the folks who visited us and even sent along some kind words. Anyhow, let’s not gush. Here is our latest in a long line of monthly mixes.

Magic is Tragic Mix: February 2013

http://www44.zippyshare.com/v/14238803/file.html

Yeah, I’m lame and post more mixes than albums these days, but I’ve got an excuse this time. A flu descended upon my abode and my son, wife and I have been recycling some bad hoodoo between us for the past month. Therefore, blogging about unpopular albums fell somewhere between roll over and die and wish for a healthier tomorrow in my daily to-do list. Anyhow, this one is a bit of a sloppy mess of songs that have lightened the load during these contagious times. It falls somewhere between an ode to 90s indie-pop and its forefathers, divergent strains of reggae and library music coupled with the greatest hits of the 60s and 70s compilation that only exists in my mind. Hope you enjoy.

I’m going to keep this a regular feature on this blog since I only get time to pontificate once a week here, but there is so much more to share in this grand and wonderful world. Consider these to be a series of entryways to the musical wormholes I hope you explore on your own. Anyhow, this one is a bit shorter than the last, but it is a lovely place to while away a lazy hour pondering the lazy pace of a rainy night like the one enveloping my home at this very moment. By the way, please friend magicistragic on facebook if you get a moment if you would like to receive more frequent missives and youtube clips of lonely souls who are not forgotten in my neck of the woods.

I haven’t compiled one of these in many a moon, but the tea leaves have gathered in such a way to make it so. Anyhow, the vibe is one of mellow hibernation as the pace never quickens and life remains static as you waste an hour or so listening to whatever has been echoing throughout my domain. Pay special attention to Nathan Abshire who is pictured above since I am kind of dumbfounded by how great his music is lately.
