JayBeeDub Mixtape February 2023

Even though February is the shortest month of the year, you're not getting shortchanged on music in this mixtape. With new music by The National, Ladytron and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds there's plenty in here to get you through the winter doldrums. This month has songs ranging from 2023 back to 1977. I do feel like I got a bit remix heavy, but I make no apologies for that, they're all bangers.

The song on this playlist I've been returning to repeatedly is Broken by Little Simz. Just so much about the lyrics resonate lately. And just if you're feeling a bit too mopey after that one, I threw in an old favourite of mine I remember seeing performed live to a small crowd at V-Fest in Toronto in 2006, the song Cheer Up, You Miserable Fuck by David Ford.

Last week the world learned of the passing of Television's Tom Verlaine. Tom was such an influential guitarist, so I made sure to end the playlist with Television's almost 11 minute opus, Marquee Moon. And just for good measure, I threw in Alvvays song about the man himself.
