THE TASTE-SWAPPING CONSORTIUM known as Adult Contemporary Mixtape Club is entering Year 2, and my number’s up again. I know only two of the dozen or so contributors in real life. But the old-fashioned labors of burning, assembling and mailing kinda bonded us—that and unleashing our emo/metal/arena/glitch/fill-in-the-blank vices on each other’s hi-fis. We canned the production hassles this year in favor of an all-digital exchange. And the obligatory Tumblr.

ACMC#13 is a mixtape lurching between extremes: sweet and aggro, vintage and vogue-ish, guitars and beats, familiar and WTF. Nobody needs my help appreciating Tune-Yards (let alone the Stones), but for my own personal time capsule, I couldn’t leave it out. Though if this were totally true to real life, there’d be a lot more girl groups and soft rock up in here. I can’t deny I’m mellowing with age.
