Mixtape: Enough is Never Quite Enough

September 24, 2009

Is there a story here?

I don’t really know. Maybe there is. It can be hard for me to tell sometimes how much of what I envision being present in a mix is actually conveyed to the other people who hear it. It can also be difficult for me to get a clear idea of what I was feeling when I first made a tape, once a little time has passed.

As for how it sounds, I think how this mix is perceived has a lot to do with your overall attitude toward the world; the pessimistic among you will see it as bleak and downtrodden, while the optimistic will get a much more hopeful set of images from it.

Personally, my opinion on its tone changes from day to day.

Either way, I hope you all enjoy it.
