Various ‎– Godless America Mixtape Vol. 5

Cassette, Compilation, Mixtape


Dear Listener,

I Think it's important to mention just how this cassette came to be. This tape is the fifth in the series. Each year I open up submissions to everyone that sees or hears the request. All entries are accepted up until the deadline. When the submission deadline has been reached I then review all the submitted songs and make my selections. Then the real work begins. I end up having to listen to the selected songs over and over. Arranging the collection into two fluent sides that are relatively equal in length. This process usually takes place on my commutes by bike to and from work for a few weeks. It’s a labor of love and it's done in the traditional sense. I have to produce a killer mixtape with just the songs I was provided. This mimics how mixtapes were originally made with just the music you had in your collection when the only clouds involved held rain. This year I added a special song one I’ve had in the archive for six years now. It was the last song I would get to work on with my late friend Tyler Owen Nicolas(1989-2013). It's a haunting tune and I thought more people needed to hear it.

Thank you for listening, but most of all thank you to everyone that submitted its these amazing and talented people that help me pull this crazy thing off every year.
