Press on the Muxtape Train [4/22/2008 11:39:00 AM]:
Meant to post this earlier, but eh, shit happens, and so... Seeing as how that whole Muxtape
thing is so damn neat, it only makes sense that the Houston Press
's John Lomax
would be into it, too
. I missed his "African diaspora" muxtape, sadly, but the one he put up this past week
is damn cool, focusing on -- yeah, you guessed it -- cool H-town people.
As mux/mixtapes go, while Lomax says the tracks are all from this decade, this one feels like a bit of a trip down Memory Lane; there're a recent tracks, like the one from The Scattered Pages, but I'm digging the Panic In Detroit, Jug O' Lightnin', and The Westbury Squares, in particular, and those bands all broke up (I'm pretty sure they did, at least) a while ago. Man, "The Anti Chorus" really, truly makes me miss The Squares; I feel like I never really gave those folks their due while they were around, but now they sound fine, fine, fine.
Anyway, check it out quick, before it gets replaced w/this week's(?) installment...
