14 for 2014

Hello friends! I’m just stopping by to give you my 2014 wrap-up playlist. I’ve been working on this very hard, and I feel it’s finally acquired a certain elusive architecture, so here it is. There’s a lot of oddity on this one, as my life was filled with unusual and overwhelming events, so I feel that a jagged quality is in order for a yearly bottom line such as this. Please feel free to ask about the less common names on the playlist, I’d be happy to elucidate and impart some trivia, if I can. Cheers!

ZaRecords Mixtape 9: Languages

Remember how earlier this week I tried to get you to guess what the theme of the upcoming Mixtape would be, based on Radio Radio’s song? It’s time for the big reveal! For the 9th Mixtape, my friend Arni and I present to you songs performed in various odd, old and otherwise less-known languages throughout the world. We talk a little about the history of the languages and of the peoples they belong to, demonstrate a bit of ignorance here and there (for which we apologize and ask you to enlighten us in the comments or on Facebook, if you can) and have a couple of hearty laughs. Enjoy!
