March 2019 pt. 1 — “can’t calm down”

Published / by kozj_6ta8tp / Leave a Comment

This month I’ll be posting between two and three mixes, all of which capture an aspect of “winter in Ithaca.”

Winter in Ithaca lasts from November until…¿? It depends, but the latter months of it (March, April…the first week of May) are definitely the most confusing and distressing. This March it has been both -5 degrees F and 64 degrees F.

The title of this mix, “can’t calm down,” is taken from a song by Hand Habits, Meg Duffy’s solo project, which just put out the album placeholder. Her guitar playing can be heard on plenty of the other songs on this mix, and the whole thing is part of an unofficial series of mixes with more guitars and fewer bleeps and bloops ( ¿”guitars > bleeps/bloops”?).
