Way back in 1999, we partnered up with Paul Fischer to start Better Looking Records because it seemed like a good idea. We don’t put as many records as we used to, and certainly don’t make bank from it, but we wouldn’t trade the experience for anything. We’re still fond of the BLR logo, so we decided to throw up some products on Society6, again, just because it seems like a good idea. Throw on the shirt when you’re feeling ridiculously good-looking, bring the tote when you go record shopping, and lay your head on the pillow as you listen to some tunes. All 15% off and free shipping today.
It’s a little late in the month, but this month’s mix is a clapper with new tracks from Strfkr, Helado Negro, Frank Ocean and more. If the last track seems random, you’re welcome. Introduce yourself to Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared. You may find it hilarious, weird as fuck, or potentially both. It was one of our favorite acts at XOXO Festival this year.
Summer is coming to a close, and this month’s mix pays homage, but to be honest we’ll still probably be bumping summer jams well into winter. On this playlist you’ll find tracks from Japanese Breakfast, Everyone Is Dirty, Father John Misty, and much more. Oh and if you miss Rdio as much as we do, check out Spotio.
When we were putting together this month’s mixtape, the song selection got dark, I think because we’re all spending too much time dwelling in the doom and gloom predictions of the internet. Luckily, a quick trip to Woodsist Festival influenced the final selection and brought balance to include some dreamy tunes. On this edition, you’ll find tracks from Yumi Zouma, Nice as Fuck, Kari Faux, Sugar Candy Mountain and more. Kick back and have a listen!
Some mixtapes are tough to get through because there’s one song you keep playing over and over. You could care less what else is on it because damn, that track is catchy. To avoid that, I put the song that pulled me back into my emo listening days at the end. Kick back and click below to enjoy some new jams from Minden, Classixx, Sonny & The Sunsets and more.
