The new Jack White produced song by First Aid Kit “It Hurts Me Too” has invaded my new playlist. Speaking of my new playlist, appropriately titled: “New Mix” (note to self:consider new title) which will soon find itself burned onto a cd for “in the car” consumption…now there is a poorly constructed sentence! Ok. New playlist. I will transcribe it hear for my second piece for 3DB…maybe offer an invitation to my fellow 3DB contributors to offer their mixes as well. The rules are simple. The playlist must not exceed the length of one burned cd.
These mix cd’s might allow our readers some insight into our tastes and personalities without having to gleam this information from ridiculous biographical blog entries.
If this blog happens (in a snowball’s chance in hell) to garner enough power and prestige to warrant free products for review/consumption, then I want to make it clear that 3DB is not above product placement or the occasional lapse in integrity, given the bribe is: A.) Substancial OR B.) Something we really like anyway and would gladly say nice things about.
Ok. A mix tape of music I’m listening to today:
“Dirty Snow At the Disco”
