I'd like to present to you all my first mixtape. These songs are all similar of mood, but different of style. For the most part the mood is downbeat, verging on miserable. Style-wise we've got some Indie-sulk favourites, Electropop, Weird shit + Sci-fi movie scores. Hooray. It's titled 'The Robert Moog Blues,' after the legendary Robert Moog (R.I.P), who invented the Moog synthesizer, an instrument I tried to maintain focus on throughout the mix. Anyway, I hope you enjoy.

Perfect intro. It's umistakably Sci-fi. It's short enough to appear as a sort of intro, which it is. It's slow, maybe even a little sexy for this mix, but ultimately it fits the mood and theme of this tape perfectly.

This song always hits me hard and always just knocks me into a melancholious mood. No synths here, but it still feels a little 80's, and feeling miserable old-school is part of the point behind this tape.
