jwz mixtape 127

Please enjoy jwz mixtape 127.

Have you noticed that it's becoming less common for record labels to mark videos as non-embeddable? Let's hope this is a trend that continues.

As seen on track 13, Tokimonsta & MNDR are playing at DNA Lounge this Wednesday!

    Brand new to your playlists; love 'em.

    Hopefully not a forbidden question, but are Spotify playlists available? Tried to find a YT->Spotify playlist converter, but no luck.

    I ask only because I take long walks with my music playing device, and these moments are my best and only opportunity to listen to new (to me) music.

    Thanks! I'm on bedrest today, and you keep me sane.

  4. Jenny: And I fell behind! I still have about half of a mixtape in the queue for the next one that didn't really fit here...

    if you ever get a tiny tv-b-gone in your inbox (still waiting for them to ship the LEDs) it's my tiny payback for your supreme mixtape diligence.

    This was a great one, thanks!

    How much do you pick videos based on the video content vs. the music content? I mostly don't watch the videos; I use it as background music while I'm doing other stuff, and I don't often have the screen real estate to have the mixtape window fully visible. I had kinda assumed you were picking the videos entirely based on the music, since the video mixtapes replaced the old audio-only mixtapes, but then last month you included the Bowie video despite not thinking much of the song. When I do watch the videos they are generally nice eye candy, but I assumed that was just because bands that make good music tend to have pretty good visual art taste too.

      It varies. Most of the time, I like both the song and the video. Sometimes I will include a song with awesome visuals even if I don't really like the song -- and sometimes I'll even include a song that I hate if the video is especially great. It's unlikely, though, that I'd include a song I loved if the video was boring. (The No Ceremony video is kind of borderline on that metric.)
