MMT Spring 2015

It was officially spring for two days in Indiana — two consecutive days of 65 and 70 degrees, followed by a prompt and unwelcome plummet right back down to 30.

But the sunshine seemed enough of an excuse to finish a spring mix. It’s full of mostly upbeat stuff, with a few downers for balance.

There are songs about witchcraft (#15), optimism (#2, #6, #22), body dysmorphic disorder (#19), venturing into the unknown (#4, #14), nostalgia (#17, #11), avaricious relatives (#8), and love & loss (basically everything else).

The cover art is the collective brainchild of three brilliant e-friends over at the magnificently dysfunctional music-and-other-stuff-too website, faithless-street.org. Check it out.

Nick, Dougoblue, thebalvenie — you guys are ridiculous and wonderful. Thanks again.
