I consider myself a bit of an internet archaeologist. One of my favorite music blogs, holywarbles.blogspot.com, disappeared in a Digital Millenium Copyright Act enforcement wave. Before it was engulfed by the harsh and turbid waters of the DMCA, I rescued one of my favorite mixtapes by blog author Moahaha. He called it Soothing Sounds of Shellac For a Long Winter, but since I didn’t source my tribute from 78s, I’ve renamed it. Conjure up the spirit of yesteryear’s fête at bit.ly/darksweets or below.
