Get To Know Your Neighbor: A Blog on Blog Interview Series #4 Jamie Milton of Music Fan’s Mic

So welcome to the fourth installment of my bi-monthly series on GITNB. It’s my way of saying thanks to those folks that have been cool to me, and a chance to give back to the community that I love so much. This was also an opportunity for me to give you, the reader, some insight into the blogs that have influenced me. Consider it my own personal take on #FF (Follow Fridays). The series will consist of a five question interview with a different blogger/writer each time, along with a few word associations and of course, a list of what you should be listening to. Hopefully you’ll discover a new blog or artist you haven’t heard of yet. You might even learn something new.

Jamie Milton is the popular guy in college that everyone wants to be friends with. At 20 he’s doing editorials for This Is Fake DIY, contributing to hip collective blogs like Lost Lost Lost, is literally creating the music pulse in the UK, and hasn’t even graduated college yet. One of the best things about Jamie is how excited he gets about artists, a quality I also share. He has this refreshing enthusiastic perspective on new music that is anything but naive, an actual developed opinion about music and why he thinks something is good. He isn’t genre specific and doesn’t give a fuck if something is trendy or not, he likes what he likes and wants to drink a beer with his mates and talk about it.

Jamie possesses the incredibly skill of tuning out any pre-conceived notions about an artist, which really sets the bloggers apart from the real writers. He isn’t jaded about music, but doesn’t love everything either. It’s that quality that makes you want climb inside his brain and hang out for more than a while. I’m just fascinated with his outlook on music and how he makes you want to listen to whatever he is writing about. He’s that guy. He is a true supporter of indie music and the scene that has developed as a result. He gets his kicks by helping underground artists emerge from the darkness. I love that. If you don’t know the name Jamie Milton yet, you will. Jamie is the music fan’s mic and there couldn’t be a better voice to hear echoing through a concert hall.

Read what Music Fan’s Mic says you should be listening to and the rest of the interview after the jump!

Keep Shelly in Athens vs ABADABAD California Birds Official Video

The amazing video for one of the tracks off the remix project I started last summer was finally released today on Gorilla vs. Bear. Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined this project turning out any better.

Through the process I have met so many incredibly talented and passionate people, I am now lucky enough to call my friends. I can’t thank all of these people enough for allowing me to push their creative limits one step further with this project. I hope you enjoy the video and if you’re in NYC tonight, check out ABADABAD and Keep Shelly in Athens at the Bowery Ballroom.

Special thanks to Brendan Canty of Feel Good Lost for being my partner in crime on this project. Check out more of his amazing videos here: www.feelgoodlost.me

Slow Magic Mixtape #2 (Goldrush)

The chilled out sex beats bar has just risen thanks to the master of mysterious blissed out beats Slow Magic. His latest work is a 25 minute mix created (I am guessing) in celebration of his first show at Colorado’s Gold Rush Music Festival. The mixtape includes splices from current favez M83, Purity Ring, Sleep Over, Sun Glitters as well as my favorite Slow Magic diddy, “Toddler Tiger”. Watch we’ll find out in a week Chris Cantalini got bored bloggin’ for Gorilla vs Bear and decided to make some beatz under a pseudonym.

Or maybe I just like starting rumors. Regardless, whoever you are Slow Magic, keep doin’ what you’re doin’, cuz you’re great at it, and clearly you’ve got impeccable taste. Peep the track list below and check out the rest of Slow Magic’s tracks on his Soundcloud and Bandcamp. 

  1. múm - away
  2. taragana pyjarama - ocean
  3. slow magic - toddler tiger
  4. SLEEP ∞ OVER - romantic streams
  5. purity ring - lofticries
  6. sun glitters - too much to lose
  7. alex winston - locomotive (beach fossils remix)
  8. m83 - midnight city
