[Guest Mixtape] Places: Morning Ride

Our latest guest mixtape comes from Nicolo Giarrano, the man behind one of the most compelling new acts in the Atlanta music scene, Places. Over just the last year, Places has output an impressive catalog of music, both in terms of quality and quantity. Anyway, here’s what he said about the mixtape he’s put together for us:

This is best listened to early in the morning, when the air outside is so still you wouldn’t dare disturb it, when you want to let the day ease into the music, allowing the morning birds to add accompaniment. This is for when your ears are too sensitive after their quiet night of dreaming. When the slight burning in your calves is outweighed by the breeze brushing over you as the sun peeks through the trees, when the weather is having an identity crisis. This is for when you know you’re going to have a good day.

Enjoy this twenty minute mix, and then don’t forget to catch the Places live band at the Goat Farm on Sunday (October 23rd) for The 4th Atlanta SOUL Project.

[Guest Mixtape] Primitive Patterns

Atlanta has quite a few record labels doing cool things right now, but one of the best new labels to crop up recently is Primitive Patterns. Their aesthetic seems to line up very close to my own taste. So give a listen to this great mix put together by Primitive Pattern’s Adam Babar of Easily Suede and Faun And A Pan Flute.

[Guest Mixtape] Vocabulary: Hopefull Impressions

Being a huge fan of mixtapes, I decided it would be fun to have musicians, bloggers, labels, etc contribute mixes to Ohmpark. This latest guest mixtape comes from Savannah, Georgia’s Cameron Allen, aka Vocabulary. I’ve spent a lot of time this summer listening to Vocabulary‘s Faded Days, which Pitchfork reviewed earlier this year, and if you have yet to give it a spin, you should really do so because it’s one of the year’s most underrated records. So, here’s the mixtape he put together for us, complete with photos he took. Enjoy:

[Guest Mixtape] David Mansfield of Double Phantom Records

Being a huge fan of mixtapes, I decided it would be fun to have musicians, bloggers, labels, etc contribute mixes to Ohmpark this summer. For the second installment of this series, David Mansfield of Double Phantom Records and the now defunct Roman Photos has put together a summer mixtape for us. Double Phantom has been around roughly as long as this blog, and in that time, it’s become an institution in Atlanta’s independent music scene. My favourite thing about DP is that it features a wide range of diversity. Not only are there so many aesthetically different artists collected under one banner, but the label releases in all sorts of formats, from vinyl to CD to free downloads at Double Phantom Digital.

Anyway, here’s what David Mansfield had to say about his mixtape:

I love making mixtapes, make one each month based on that month, memories of that month, and the season. So this one is a summer one technically. Pretty much I fell in love with all these songs in summer, and a lot of them make me think of other places and going somewhere. Travel is very important to me. But for me it also captures the experience of a hot summer day then slowly going into the balmy night. Hope you dig it! It was fun to do it.


1. Happy Mondays : “Tart Tart”
2. The Slits : “Love Und Romance”
3. Wire : “Strange”
4. Blur : “Tune 2″
5. Nicolas Jaar : “Too Many Kids Finding Rain In The Dust”
6. A Tribe Called Quest : “Youthful Expression”
7. The Pharcyde : “Otha Fish”
8. The Avalanches : “Frontier Psychiatrist”
9. Simonal : “Nem Vem que Nao Tem”
10. Françoise Hardy : “C’est Le Passe”
11. Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood : “Down From Dover”
12. Saint Etienne : “People Get Real”
13. Matthew Dear : “Pom Pom”
14. Siouxie And The Banshess : “Kiss Them For Me”
15. Aphex Twin : “Pulsewidth”
16. Kraftwerk : “Neon Lights” (live)
17. Brian Eno : “Everything Merges With The Night”
