Matt Marchinowski of Big School Records is moving out of Philadelphia. To celebrate his time here, Marchinowski has pieced together a snapshot of the local music scene with a 27-track mixtape called Philamixington II, available as a free download via his Tumblr. The second installment in the local music mixtape series, this collection samples various genres, circles and side projects with tracks from radio favorites like Cheers Elephant (pictured), basement staples Roof Doctor and The Hundred Acre Woods and new-projects-from-old-buddies like Avery Rosewater. From Marchinowski:
Avery Rosewater, Big School Records, Catnaps, Cheers Elephant, Cold Fronts, Cruiser, DRGN King, Eat Your Bir, Former Belle, Gracie, Jon Coyle, KC Jones, Ladies Auxiliary, Lockets, Luther, mixtape, Modern Baseball, Neighborhood, Night Panther, Norwegian Arms, Old Smile, Psamlships, radiator hospital, Roof Doctor, The Chairman Dances, The Hundred Acre Woods, The Tough Shits, Thom McCarthy, Work Drugs
Although April will see my moving out of Philadelphia for the peaceful confines of the sticks I will still consider its scene ‘home’. It wasn’t easy narrowing this collection down to 27 jawns but I can assure you it won’t be the last notch in the Philamixington series.
