Note to all of you aspiring musicians out there who would like to reach my vast readership of...like 17 - write a song romanticizing the ritual of mix-tape making. I will surely post it. I am such a sucker for the nostalgia involved with the mix-tape and all of it's traditions. I assure you, I will post it.
But in this case, the song is truly fantastic, as is the artist, and if not this tune then I surely would have posted another. The band is Darren Hayman and the Secondary Modern. They are an outfit from the UK who play and record some mighty fine indie-pop.
The current record is called 'Pram Town' and you can find this song on that LP.
