[Download Mixtape] Tape Tuesday: Arcadia

New Tape Tuesday!

There are so many ideas floating around at all times. Some ideas peak your interest, and others just sort of drift off into the ethos. Higher education means focusing your attention on the ideas that interest you, because otherwise it is so easy to get lost in higher thought. “Arcadia” might seem like a really pretentious name for a mix, and that’s because it totally is. But it derives from this idea I discovered that interested me (apparently, during ancient Greek times Arcadia represented a pastoral utopia). The mix itself is an epic, 22-track adventure with artists ranging from NZ export Lorde to Chicago’s own Vic Mensa. Hopefully, listening to it will inspire an idea–or even the drive to seek understanding–or maybe it will simply act as an escape. Maybe these songs will take you to your own personal utopia.

P.S. The mix features three different pieces of cover art, each representing a different part of the tape.

[Download MP3] The Majestic Music of Lontalius

New Lontalius!

Lontalius is Eddie Johnston. He is friends with Lorde, but that’s not why I’m writing about him. He makes music and does lo-fi covers (often of hip-hop songs). They are hazy and distorted and just frickin’ majestic. It’s like he lives in a mystical forest and is pals with centaurs. It’s like he swims with dolphins and dines with lions. He must live in a castle on an undiscovered island and own human-sized cat servants and collect vintage Furbies. I don’t want to beat this into the ground, but it’s like he bathes in rivers of gold and ejaculates ice cream sundaes.

Just

fucking

majestic

shit.
