This week's mixtape is a bit better late than never, a loud yet dreamy ode to my homeland. Okay, I've never called LA home, but it is the nearest metropolis to where I grew up; loud, brash, punk, hot n dreamy. I tried to capture that sunny-freeway-beachy-kitschy-urban-dried up-glamour that it oozes. This is the soundtrack to long long car journeys, and long lazy afternoons in the dusty hills or sandy seaside. Every time I visit, I ache to just stay. Who knows, I may just call it home in the near future.
Special kisses to my brother and all my good good friends living life on the sunny side.

Unfortunately for this blog, iTunes changes their layout making it impossible for me to put together an iMix of this mixtape despite the fact that nearly every song is available there. Until I figure it out, if you're looking to purchase the tracks above do a good old fashioned search...
