  1. love it as always!

  2. Another fine, fine entry in the Sociables series ♥ + It's nice to know I can move my feelings about the domestic pop scene from almost completely thorough disinterest and abandonment down a peg to.. ah.. not quite as severely felt disinterest :D(so ninety eight percent disinterest down to.. seventy five, perhaps~) Because this mix proves there are still good things to be found if I took the time to look for them.. maybe I'll work at being a tad less lazy and toward doing exactly that~ This provides a good starting point to that end.. I was curious to hear The Aluminum Group after noticing they're another group Chocolat & Akito list as being a favorite of theirs.. and if that Seal of Approval can get me to actively listen to Steely Dan, why not other things..? And "Chocolate" wasn't a bad song('s kind of coincidentally funny that Chocolat's namechecking of the group is the thing that made me extracurious to hear them, and the first song of theirs I do hear is called "Chocolate" :D), so perhaps discoveries of more of their music will be in my Future.. Oh, oh, and "The Hook" is also _great_. So, so true, and it featured many quotable lyrics to be used as borrowed opinions on the subject.. "All the pretty young singers with their popular songs/Kind of short on meaning but the beat goes on/You really have to love them - but not for very long...".. Yep, that's definitely the state of current pop music in a nutshell~

    As always, thank you very much for compiling and sharing this ♥ I really don't know what I'd do without this blog, your mixes, and the benefits of being exposed to all kinds of new music ;_;
