Allen’s Mixtape: 6/27/2015

In the madness that is Summerfest, I still had time to put together a mixtape for this week. Now, granted, the lineup may have influenced my picks, as evidenced by the presence of Schoolboy Q and Something Corporate (you know, that band Andrew McMahon fronted once). However, there’s a ton of pop punk from my early teenage years there, too.

Allen’s Mixtape: 6/20/2015

This week’s mixtape is a little erratic, but when isn’t it, really. There’s a lot of indie, but I’m ashamed to say Kriss Kross, I mean Rae Sremmurd’s “This Could Be Us” was an earworm for me, as well. There’s also some La Crosse pop punk in Of The Fact’s “Breakdown”. Definitely a band I’d say to check out if

Allen’s Mixtape : 6/13/2015

This week is another unique week for the mixtape, with the first appearance of any country music via Keith Urban. I attribute that to  trip to Racine earlier in the week. There’s also plenty of trap beats that make their way into the mix. And if it’s worth anything, I listened to a ton of Purity Ring this week,  so

This week’s mixtape is more of an EP, actually. It has that sort of feel to it. I’m sure more songs were stuck in my head, but these were the top earworms. I also apparently had a thing for female singers today, so there’s that. Anyway, I’m headed up to Minnesota today, so there’s a chance I might be listening

Allen’s Mixtape : 5/30/2015

This week was a weird one for me, so naturally, this week’s playlist is a little weird, too. There’s the kinda-creepy original version of Tom’s Diner, and Rod Stewart’s “Sailing” makes an appearance, after being stuck in my head on Thursday morning. There’s also some pop punk angst in there, with Alkaline Trio and Taking Back Sunday. And then we

I didn’t forget about you guys this long Memorial Day weekend. However, it’s a bit of a shorter playlist this time around. Mainly because these songs stayed in my head for multiple days this week. I’d be more than stoked if you play this at your barbeques this weekend, so if you do, let me know! Enjoy the mix! Share

Allen’s Mixtape: 5/16/15

I immediately went to work on my second weekly mixtape after my first one was published. I like this project, because you can kind of see the ebb and flow of my week based on my music choices. Or, conversely, there will be some weeks where things are completely random. That happens, too. Anyway, check out this week’s mix, with

Allen’s Mixtape: 5/9/2015

So here’s a new thing I’m gonna try to start doing. Or maybe I’ll just do it this one week. Whatever the case, I want to start bringing you a weekly mixtape, and this is the first (maybe only!) installment. To put it simple, I listen to a lot of music during the week. I mean… a lot of music.
