I was on my way to being on my way to New York City and beyond, but had to come back home for things forgotten. Seeing as how I am only one of a somewhat large number of people making travels here at the end of May, I would not feel right about not sharing this mix before I go. This mix was recently submitted for the Tapeworms April theme, “Geography.”
Take it with you for your travels or take it in while wishing you were traveling.
I take the order of the songs as though beginning a journey in Tennessee, trekking the USA, then down to South America. From there, taking a boat up to Florida and then flying over to Europe and heading East.
On a simple side note, while in NYC, I’ll be meeting up with writer/musician/ photographer/former resident of El Studio, Matt Zingg. Without knowing him, Smart Went Crazy may have never been on this mix. All the more fitting.
