you know, that's the kind of thing that causes accidents


here's our monthly mixtape. i tried to gather a few songs that i've been listening since the year started. after my last year's musical retrospective, i discovered a lot of things that could easily be among the best songs and albums of the year. unfortunately, it's impossible to catch up with everything in the short period of time that is a year (very subjective, i know, but as the music goes 'days go by so slowly and years go by too fast').
the name of the compilation was taken from the opening track 'beautifulgirlsunnyledges' by money can't buy music, a side project from gordon mcintyre (ballboy). a moving spoken chronicle, trademark of gordon's writing style.
the other 20 tracks are a mixture of happy/gloomy tunes. it is more melancholic than i imagined it would be, but there are some moments that all you'll want to do is jump and jump and jump. so enjoy (!) and be careful, accidents* happen(!).
