2015: Will get better from seroquel on 8tracks Radio.

2015: Happy to be Here from seroquel on 8tracks Radio.

Hey my loves,

I guess I can’t help myself. I still make a mixmas. In fact I made two. Two different vibes. It made sense to me. What made it a bit more fun this year was having my lil’ William help shape the mix slightly. (The Bear’s Den and Girls Chase Boys were his picks.) The rest, they were just some of my faves. Big thanks also to Nathan and Bry for bringing to my life those tracks by David Kilgour, Dwight Twilley Band, and Sonny and the Sunsets. Holler if you need me to add a hardcopy download link. Sorry I’m feeling lazy tonight. Still. I’m so happy this forum is still here. Really glad for that. I miss all of youse! Hope you have a great year…

    Great! I listened to both of these last night. Dependable as ever.

    Every once in a while a sneak an iPod into the dock in our gym and play one of your dopamine-heavy mixes.

    Nate and I were on a similar wavelength. We have a mix coming in a couple days. It’s mostly ready but I’ll let these have a few days first.

    Hello my lovelies! I miss you too.

    Fan-flipping-tastic! You don’t even know how much I needed a good shot of music what the kids are listening to. I can’t wait to listen myself.

    I would totally take advantage of a download link.

    What Josh K-sky said.

  5. Dave says:

    Yeah, I’d love a download. Farrell’s mixes are about the only new pop music that makes it onto my ipod.

  6. GF says:

    We wished he had this on CD for our road trip this weekend! (Our car is so retro.)

  7. Bryan says:

    It’s funny b/c Nate and I for a while were entertaining a different song from New Pornographers: this one. But in the end it just didn’t fit our vibe. I should have listened more closely to the rest of the album (which I admit I haven’t, ever a fan of their solo stuff more than the whole band, and Bejar more than the others) because “Champions of Red Wine” would actually have gone really well on our mix.
