It’s been far too long since I last uploaded a new music podcast but here at last is my long-awaited spring 08 catch-up mix. If you are new here though, you should know that a quarterly music dump of indie and discovered music is an old tradition on thomaspurves.com
Now, of these tracks, many probably have or have heard a lot of them by now, something to do with indie going more mainstream or more mainstream going indie. But for those who asking for music tips, I hope there’s a few surprises in here for you.
I really like this mix though it’s a good combination of bands I’ve been listening to the last few (ok several) months. It’s a little more upbeat and electro too than the last few mixes which were getting a little bit sleepy in parts.
This is a preview, still working on the mixed together version to actually slip into the postcast feed. But not to wait any longer, you can get it as one big download.
