We first started talking about releasing a Purr Tapes compilation on cassette many months ago back in the cold Portland winter. Since then we’ve been contacting as many artists as possible, seeking out as many new sounds as we could take in, and even making connections with musicians who we’ve admired for some time. It all added up to become something quite special that far exceeded our most ambitious expectations. So it is with great honor and elation that we present to you our Summer Compilation mixtape for 2012.
21 songs from 21 artists around the globe, including tracks from Purr Tapes veterans and tracks from those we plan to work with in the future. There are b-sides, demos, one-offs, unreleased songs, newly released songs, and even songs constructed specifically for this mix. Most of the tape sticks to the electronic and lo-fi side of things, but make no mistake, this mix is filled with color and flavor. We believe it is most suitable for those hazy, humid mornings and soft summer nights ahead.
