The Gobloots Mix Tape
Gobloots is one of the finest songwriters I have ever come across, and like a lot of the great songwriters, he's also not known as well as he should be. He's as prolific as he is brilliant. Whether it be heartbreaking tales about a coach's inappropriate relationship with his students, poignant lesbian love songs, or just capturing what it feels like to get shit faced and lost, in a world that seems filled with the shit faced and lost, Gobloots does it better than most. Each song is a slice of pie more American than that apple kind.
Or, as Alex puts it:
This mix tape was compiled by HI54LOFI RECORDS and is available for free to help spread the word about the brilliant and prolific songwriter that Alex is. As you can see, this mix tape is like one of those old fashioned mix tapes… it only has 2 sides. I love digital as much as the next guy, but sometimes we tend to jump around too much when we're listening to music and shuffle just for the sake of shuffling. So these digital mix tapes (or digital vinyls) are meant to be function like their non-digital counterparts, press play and listen from start to finish (the beauty with digital versions of old technology is that you don't have to physically flip the tape / record).
PDF Liner Notes
Not only is the mix tape free, but it also comes with PDF liner notes - liner notes which contain Alex's explanation of where the name Gobloots comes from, among other things — as well as Side A and Side B track listing.
