[Download Mixtape] Tape Tuesday: What Now?

New Tape Tuesday!

These days everything’s in constant motion. Music, technology, and culture are moving furiously at breakneck speeds, which is equal parts frightening and exciting. Locked inside the echo chamber, it can be easy to feel lost, depressed, or lose sight of your goals, as you are constantly informed of other people’s achievements. In two weeks, I graduate college, and suddenly even life seems to be moving at a rapid pace. My friends are preparing to move on to the next stages of their careers, most following the path paved for them the day they chose their majors. I am taking a different route. And even though everything will likely work out in the end, I am scared. For practically the first time in my life, I have no real plans: no school after summer, no shitty internships, no job. So, with the last Tape Tuesday ever (!), I am asking: what now? And if someone has the answer, please let me know in the comments.

Thank you to everyone who has ever listened to a Tape Tuesday over the years. It has been a great honor to have a platform to put out these personal projects. If you ask me, that is all anyone could ask for, and if people listen, it is an added bonus. <3

And we can turn back the clock, making moves that I thought I wanted back at 21, 22, 23, 24 / Never wrong, thought I was never wrong and better off just wanting less but I knew all of me wanted more. -”Untitled” by Matthew Chaim

Rostam – Don’t Let It Get To You

Rostam of Vampire Weekend

Vampire Weekend’s own Rostam Batmanglij put up a new track on his Tumblr yesterday and it’s been circulating the Internet quite quickly. Upbeat pop with some droned out lyrics makes for a full ride through this track called “Don’t Let It Get To You.” This could very quickly become one of my favorite tracks of the month. Not going to lie, the instrumentals kind of make me feel like I’m skipping around circus grounds. Look out for carnies!!!!!

Music Video: “All Summer” – Kid Cudi, Rostam Batmanglij, Bethany Cosentino

Music video was just released for this Converse collaboration. It’s a little creepy, quite funny, and pretty cool. Translation: I think I like it, but then again, I like most things that Cudi’s in.
