I don’t often make thematic mixtapes but lately I’ve found myself falling for songs about falling. May seems to be the perfect time of year to have a new crush. There’s something about warming temps and budding trees that makes it easy to fall in love. Maybe it’s that foxy hipster you keep seeing at shows or cravings for a new roll you tried at your favorite sushi joint. My latest crush is my new city - and a mess of bands.
So without further ado, I give you my latest mixtape: Crush.

I hope you find a new band crush as a result of listening to this mix. If you do, show that love and check out a concert or buy their latest 7”. After all you can’t expect to get more lovin’ without giving any in return.
