A month ago, Anna over at doorsixteen.com opened my eyes to a great website / mobile app called 8tracks, which allows you to curate and upload your own mixtape, share with friends, and stream the music from anywhere! I know that everyone’s jam right now seems to be Spotify (tweet me or leave a comment if you need an invite) but the allure of the mixtape is probably why I still have BOXES of them sitting at home in my old bedroom at my parents’ house. I just love how personal they are.
I put together a mix of eight summery songs I adore — featuring Brooklyn-loving bands, naturally — which you can stream below. You can find me over at 8tracks as jillysp and who knows? Maybe I’ll share more tapes here on the blog in the future! Hope you enjoy!
