Chocolate Grinder Mix 76
Not as Deep: Just as Surface

Tell it as “It is.” Be real. Honestly? Y’all won’t like this mix. Butt ear, ear: ear it is…

- Lalić: reminds me of /please/’s .2. release from last year. Real post-bedroom/out-there linger collage stuff.
- Tape Loop Orchestra: will continue to steal breath from my body and beats from my heart. Soulless music for the soulless believer.
- Mike Cooper: makes my work-place neighbors think I’m listening to crickets all day. “I’d like his job.”
- Bangladesh: the mixtape is a fucking mixtape, but that broad scheming is LOL. Save it for the beach.
- L. Pierre: dropped my Thursday into a bowl of serenity. I am now haunted.
- Aki Onda: takes me to everywhere I used to be. He beholds the finest memory relapse.
- Mark Templeton: once ruined the way I listen to music. Now it’s though nothing’s changed.
- Unburied: is totally LOL metal at its MAX. Best enjoyed on the highway.
- Aaron Dilloway: continues to crush ass. Stop him before it’s too late for your ears.
- YYU: yelled during his set when the audio fucked up, and even though we were in a warehouse, it still felt unprofessional. Yet, I love his unprofessional style of music-making keeping its shit together.
- Félicia Atkinson: supports that post-Pocahaunted vibe. On a whim, I bought this without regret.
- Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement: can be expensive shit. But vastness has a tender spot in my mind (see: brain scar tissue).
- Abyssal: provides the most devastating listening experience this year. Kill…
- Tyler, The Creator: can suck my copyrighted DICK! I gets mine on YouTube.
- Grouper: is new to me, so hi!
