white belts: songs for the indie rock lifestyle cover

step one step two step three step four step five


[ white belts: songs for the indie rock lifestyle ] -- zip file, 135mb

This is my last mix (I think.) The title comes from the oft mocked indie rock/hipster fashion trend of wearing white belts with dark jeans and having an ultra-cool haircut to go along with it. I'm kind of a hipster, but not to the point where I can't mock the hell out of everyone else who rocks the trends along with me.

About the songs: Sunday night is hipster night at a club I go to. It was organized by a couple of my friends and we all pitch in DJing each week. If I were going to dj, these are the bands I would play. All quality dancing songs with a pretty good mix of classic and more cutting edge songs. And it's a longer than my other mixes, clocking in at just about 2 hours even because I couldn't pare it down any further and, uh, it's a more authentic dj set this way because we do 2 hour sets.

Heh thanks! I spent forever on flickr earlier looking for pictures of hipsters in white belts. And I didn't even find a good picture! In fact the only picture I can claim any amount of ownership to is the one of the grafitti (step two). I took that picture in Williamsburg, Brooklyn last March so it's like, authentic and stuff.

I think I must be a wannabe, because these look great to me and yet I'm not a hipster.

Thanks! I love making album artwork, there's something terribly fun (and time consuming!) about the process. And this is posted publically so if you wanted to link to it (heh, not that you have to, just that I know you like to link to stuff like this sometimes) you're welcome to go for it.

Oh it is posted publically! Excellent, I'd wanted to link to this and the Getaway one but I wasn't sure of the posting status.

I have the most insane amount of bandwidth ever so I decided to just go for it and post them publically. So do feel free to link to them.

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Thursday night is hipster night in Boston. I'd be lying if I said it wasn't a lot of fun.

And yay! music. :))

Re: GO!
They do, they're mostly emo though, hmm they sound sort of like Keane, I think. Anyway they have a website here with some more info on them and some mp3s that you can download.

Um...you don't know me, but good music drew me here. Great looking mix. Excellent job with the song choices and look. (And it has "Anything, Anything"! Which is one of those songs I've loved and meant to get forever and a day. But I always forget, because I am lame.)

*snags* Thank-you so much!

Oh good, I was trying to go for songs like that, that people have probably heard and gone, oh I really meant to download this and never did, or heard but didn't know the band and couldn't download it. So yeah, I hope you enjoy the mix :D

Omigod I am such a hipster. Half these songs, I already love, and the other half will be dowloading soon.

Your mix is pretty much awesome.

Directed here by [livejournal.com profile] hackthis. Loving it, taking it, telling everyone else about it.

Also, props for the name. I knew exactly what it meant when I first read the link and it cracked me up.

Oh rad! I'm so incredibly pleased that someone got the name before the explanation. I was afraid it might be too obscure for people so this is great news :D And feel free to pimp the mix if you want to.
