I’m a little late in the game posting about this one but I’m really digging muxtape. I’ve never been able to get into sites like last.fm because they seemed so impersonal, and kinda creepy… a robot spying on your itunes and then comparing you to this huge database and telling you whats compatible with your personal record. Muxtape is old school curatorial, your friends putting together the exact songs stuck in their head at the moment, and in an order that makes sense to them. Plus I like the post-web2.0 design that seems to be all the rage today – simple, clean lines, big text, and no goddamn rounded corners. Click once to play a song, once more for it to stop.
Of course, for all you readers out there philosophically opposed to listening to music through your browser, and who can’t be bothered to hack it out (thnx jono!), I’ll try to keep an mp3 archive of each playlist I upload on this site, and calling it fair use. Here’s my first mix, a collection of tracks that have been stuck in my head (for better or for worse) during the past month:
01 – Stro – clothing song
02 – The Breeders – Walk It Off
03 – Bondage Fairies – He-man
04 – Teengirl Fantasy – Portofino
05 – Battle of Mice – Sleep and Dream
06 – RjD2 – Ghostwriter
07 – Blind Melon – No Rain
08 – Rihanna – Umbrella (VNDLSM remix)
09 – Mistah F.A.B – Hula Hoop
10 – The Killers – Smile Like You Mean It (Fischerspooner Remix)
11 – M.I.A. – Paper Planes
12 – Lali Puna – Micronomic (boom bip remix (compilation edit))

High five. I’m also digging muxtape as a temporary host for little friendly mixes.
As another option for those averse to listening to music through their browsers, there are a few greasemonkey scripts out there that will add convenient “download .mp3” links next to each track. Though it seems like Justin (muxtape dev) disables the workarounds as soon as they’re made public. Cat and mouse!
That cover art is really rad!
Tracks 6,8,11 also stuck in my head. Cannot wait to see you!
