Oh crap it is spring, baseball opened yesterday then three new mixtapes have dropped in the last two days. For those who don’t know I am a huge fan of baseball and the . I know, I know how does a middle class white male who grew up in Whit SoxMontana become a White Sox fan? In one word, Bo Jackson. When he started playing for the South Side and they made a run to the ALCS I knew my team was destined to be the Pale Hose. Paste Magazine had a great blog about indie artists and their love of baseball, check it out here.
Ok enough about baseball and on to the mixtapes. First off Child Gambino dropped I Don’t Talk yesterday and in true Donald Glover fashion it is witty, fun, and smooth. Then early this morning On the Couch favorite K.Flay released three new tracks from her I Stopped Caring in ’96 mixtape. I looks like she will be releasing the work in three volumes and today was the unveiling of vol. 1. Then last but not least is Xaphoon Jones, mix master of the Chiddy Bang duo, released Xaphoon Jones Mixtape Vol. 2 this afternoon.
With warmer weather just over the horizon these mixtapes will be a great company for your adventures over the weekend. If you are still getting crappy weather let the tunes inspire to keep your heads up.
