I just recorded my first mix for The 45 Brains. Been planning this one for a while but didn’t actually sit down and put it together until a few hours ago. It’s a valentine’s mix but it’s not your typical mush. From my experience, relationships, and love, are not as simple and easy as the idealistic younger version of myself once thought. And I hope that sentiment is reflected in the 45s I chose for the mix.
“Love Ain’t Simple” tracks the inevitable ups and downs of young love. It kicks off hopeful, excited, and full of promises, and ends with some downtempo doubt and murky resolutions. Each song is simultaenously a question and answer. But most importantly, these are some soulful 45s that I really love, and I hope you do too.
