The Max Rambles Mixtape Vol. 1

I love playlists. They're great for road trips and bike rides, and a ton of fun to make. As High Fidelity taught us, there's a subtle artistry to creating the perfect melange of tunes and it requires that you listen to a lot good music. What's not to like? A friend and blogosphere compatriot recently posted an excellent mixtape and it made me think, "Why not do the same on my blog?"

So with that in mind I present to you the Max Rambles Mixtape Vol. 1, a collection of things I've been listening to lately and that seemed to fit together nicely. The track list is as follows:

Analogue - Tim Gilbertson
Devils & Dust - Bruce Springsteen
Wicked and Weird - Buck 65
Change of Time - Josh Ritter
The Dress Song - Jack Marks
Chasing Heather Crazy - Guided By Voices
Random Rules - Silver Jews
New Drink For The Old Drunk - Crooked Fingers
Far Away - José González
What Are You Willing To Lose? - Lucero
Small Definition - Superchunk
Shadow People - Dr. Dog
Toronto - Matty Powell
Road Regrets - Dan Mangan

Visit RapidShare to download the mix (click on the "free user" button under the speedometer on the right and wait about a minute then click on the download link). I don't promise that there will be more of this kind of thing, though it does seem probable. For more awesome tunes check out the aforementioned murder tapes or visit Beyond The Wall of Sleep (I particularly liked their Alt Country Revisited mix). 

Enjoy and lemme know what you think or if you have any recommendations!

  1. love the songs. it would be nice if the tracks were separate in the download, though. it turned into one giant song for me.
