An Oral Future/History of Alchemist Records Vol. 1

I put together this Alchemist Records related mix for JJ of the nice blog Cool Deal/Cool Tapes.  His previous mixes have included one from Lefse Records so I think we’re in good company.  My mix is a fairly lengthy journey through both Alchemist Records music (past, present and future) and some tracks from my records and collection that highlight a variety of things that influence the aesthetic of our label.  There’s a few unreleased Alchemist tracks including one from Atlantic at Pacific, One In A Googolplex, yours truly (I and I), and new artists Lazr Hipoh.  Some of these will be on upcoming releases and some we are still not sure about so this may be your only chance to hear them.  There is also a slightly alternate mix of my brother Eric’s awesome track “So She Says” that will  get you pumped for his forthcoming (still untitled and somewhat mysterious) new record that will be out on the soon side.  The new track of mine that’s on the mix is called “Go” and will most likely be on the next album.  You can download/listen to the whole mix here or visit the Cool Tapes site and pick it up there along with JJ’s comments:
