Royal Rhino Flying One - New Year Mixtape

In the spirit of acting on ideas I think might be good, I decided it’d be fun to post up some kind of mixtape-thingy to further celebrate all the music I thought good enough to post here and you condescended to listen to. Do they necessarily cohere as a set? I doubt it very much. Nevertheless, it’s a great way to find some new music you’ll like and find out what the hell I’ve been talking about all this time without having to plod your way through my writing. The former’s probably a bigger draw, so focus on that one.

Ideally, this’ll be the first of a new tradition, so expect a “royalrhinoflyingtwo” at some point, and so on, ad infinitum. Having said that, thanks to Vera Vodak for letting me use one of her photographs to make the above cover image. She’s a very talented German who writes wonderful English and takes beautiful photos. Vielen schoenen Dank!
