Hi everybody! It’s been a really long while….I’ve been out in Europe on tour, and then back in the states working on a new album, moving into a new apartment, and doing a LOT of job-hunting and penny-pinching.
Actually, it seems like everybody has been doing that, to not much avail, so I’ve whipped up this handy dandy little recession mixtape to lift your spirits and/or maybe make you want to hang yourself. It’s mostly old disco & soul cuts, because that’s what I gravitate to when I am broke for some reason… Anyway, this one goes out to all my fellow unemployed homies–hope you enjoy it!
