jwz mixtape 103

Please enjoy jwz mixtape 103.

Or try to. Half of these don't play because the cockmunchers at UMG would prefer that you not be aware of the artists they purport to represent. Maybe there are other copies of these videos that don't run afoul of Google's content-ID-matching algorithm, but frankly I can't be bothered playing whack-a-mole with these parasitic monopolists any more. Just don't watch those tracks. Sorry, bands: that's what you get for assigning your copyrights to a label. Welcome to oblivion.

Anyway.

The Naked And Famous' album Passive Me, Aggressive You, as heard in the first video, is one of the best albums I've gotten lately. I've been listening to it over and over. And Chromatics (second video) will be playing at DNA Lounge on Sep 7.

  1. The Naked and Famous performance at the London iTunes Festival this year was awesome. You can still get the free app and watch the archived gig. I, too, have had Passive Me, Aggressive You in constant rotation.

    Your whining seems to have worked, because this mixtape must have been the first of which I was able to watch ALL videos without exception (from Switzerland). There were only 4-6 that I had to watch in a regular YouTube frame, presumably because the labels want me to see their advertisements for the album or so. Annoying but somewhat understandable.
    Oh, and by the way: Great mixtape! Thanks.

      Normally when you have to watch on Youtube instead of inline in the playlist, I just omit those videos. Fuck that shit.
