Yay! My first ever mixtape!!! I've recently been getting into some indie rock, and a friend of mine requested that I make him a mix of some cool stuff I like. I realize that a lot of the stuff on here isn't incredibly indie, but I wanted to introduce some stuff to him that he's going to like and not accoust him with a bunch of unheard of, way out there, experimental stuff. Gotta ease him in.
