Don't Die Wondering's "Tumblreality" mix

One of the best Tumblrs in the world, and Dummy correspondents, pull together their greatest hits in a mix of terrific artists blogged there first, from Holy Other to D/R/U/G/S to Jai Paul, for their second year in the business.

Ran by local heroes whose heredity tree goes back to Merok records, Don’t Die Wondering is one of the best place to find out about new music and read sprawling, dissociative posts about the same.

To introduce their mix, recorded for their second birthday party, they wrote the below:

“In Tumblreality, the only thing that is real is the tumble. Posts tumble like real troopers in a sequential line in a blue boxed exodus out of sight into the comfort zone of other pages. Songs I’ve loved on pages 5, 19 and 33, in the next few days will tumble to pages 7, 21 and 35, respectively. Rediscovering a post page 97, the bandwidth of which is now long expired, can bring an unexpected tear to the eye, like finding a dusty old yearbook in the attic. The point here is not to get all teary eyed but rather to coin the term Tumblereality, as well as to say that DDW is now on SoundCloud. Here’s a mix to inaugurate it, of some favorite songs and artists I’ve had the privilege of sharing here over the last year or so. Thanks to all the artists included. And thanks to Linda Jarvis for the new blog design.”

Keep your eyes peeled here to catch their next Dummy mix, but in the meantime grab this mix and make sure you RSS-feed them if you don’t already.
