*hello, please boost and enjoy*

i am soft-launching the first installment of my lofi yacht rock mixtape series exclusively on masto

i took an hour of obscure, bizarre, amateurish, and goofy (or at least attempts at it) from the late 70s to mid 80s, mixed it live, then dubbed it to a NOS TDK cassette from 1982 and back to digital.

Y Sides Vol. 1 is FREE on Bandcamp.

:cassette: Hare Krishna slow jams
:cassette: a song from a Garfield tv special
:cassette: unreasonably smooth germans

The desired listening experience is “what the fuck is this and why does it groove so good”

oh and @Pixley it starts with a Googie & Tom Coppola track

the NEXT is "Covered Under Sail," amateur and weird yacht rock covers of the era

here is the tracklist for vol 1, many extremely weird songs

@alex i accidentally had this playing in two tabs with a slight delay and took 3 minutes to notice. i can't think of any higher compliment for a lofi mix, great job!

@alex 🎶 foolin around, foolin around, oh-ooh *flute solo*

@alex *daffy duck in space jam 2 voice* Well, that happened!!

@djsundog the British press once described the one-single band World Series as “Level 42 with a good singer” which I find very funny because the song has very tossed-off vocals

@alex I'll be spinning the mix with my morning coffee as I sift through jira tickets

@alex this is definitely what I'll be listening to at work tomorrow! nicely done 😍​
