Bring­ing back the tape in mix­tape. I didn't do a great job this year at keep­ing a steady sup­ply of these go­ing. To make up for it, here's a whole bunch of those things be­fore the year ends. One with your usu­al stan­dard­ized 12XU fare. One full of warm and cozy pow­er pop. And as an an­ti­dote to the lat­ter, a kin­da gruff one, lean­ing to­wards the hard­core side of things. So at least i can say i made four mix­es this year.

In case you won­der what verspan­nungskas­sette means… Keep won­der­ing be­cause it's a pret­ty much un­trans­lat­able play on words.
