January Mix and Sample!

Oh the musical places we'll go!
Well readers, as we come to the end of week 4 of our Scent Challenge 2011, it's time for the first of our twelve draws. As of today I'm 19 scents into my goal of 260, and I feel good so far. I am 8% of my challenge complete. (Who knew perfume could involve so much math?)

So, in honor of this tiny milestone (more of a pit stop, really), one of you lucky readers is going to receive a mix CD and a couple samples. Don't ask me what samples yet -- I dunno.

I won't give up the track list of CD, but I can tell you that the name is "What's a Girl To Do?" and is likely to feature artists such as: The Bird & The Bee, The Heathers, A Fine Frenzy, OK Go, Bat for Lashes, and many more. Never heard of any of them?  That's okay!  I live in Portland, where we specialize in obscure things you've never heard of.  Also, we put birds on things and call it art!  Don't believe me? There's even a video about it.

All interested parties welcome regardless of place of residence.  Live on the moon?  We will still try to reach you!


Post before 12:01 AM Pacific Standard Time on 02/01/2011 to enter, and tell me what artists you are listening to right now. 

This inquiring mind always wants to know!

The Wiggles. Not by choice. :D

Yay for drawings and Yay for mixtapes (sorry, mix CD's!). My husband has a bit of a crush on Bat for Lashes, so been listening to her stuff quite a bit (we went to see her in concert, and I empathize with the the crush :). Lately, my favorites are old standbys: Songs:Ohia/Magnolia Electric Co., the Replacements, and Brian Eno.

Jen: I feel for you. Seriously.

phthalo -- I would LOVE to see Bat for Lashes live. And Florence. And Jenny Lewis. And Amanda Palmer.

I could go on...

And nothing wrong with old standbys, especially ones as good as those!

Also, phthalo, if I thought anyone would be able to receive cassettes anymore, I'd be all about that. I loved me some cassettes back in the day. Now I stick to CDs, which people can also rip, so that's easier for everyone. Though I also admit to buying $20 mp3 players at Frys, filling them with songs, and sending them as gifts.

It sounds interesting I am not familiar with any of those groups but I will check them out on Pandora

Nina Simone and Billie Holiday ~ good music to clean house by :)

Diana said...

Taffy -- I hope you like them. I like a lot of different kinds of music, but these fall kind of together, which happens a lot with my mixes.

Oh True Apothecary -- Thanks again for the shout out and kind words. Glad to see you around! :)
