The DodoNest 2016 winter mix is out now, and personally, this feels like one my best ones 🙂 There are some wonderful new tracks in here, most from this year, from both underground and well-know artists.
Michael Kiwanuka is an upcoming blues musician that gets you to feel the groove in “One More Night.” I already had my tickets to see him perform but he got throat infection or something and cancelled. UGH! 2016 just gotta carry on being a shit like that. 🙄
“Come” is an amazing, upbeat song by an eclectic young French artist named Jain who comes at you with a big sound you can’t help but move to. A lot of great indie rock tracks that have gotten me through this ugly butt0-end of the year. (“Get Out” by Frightened Rabbit is my mantra right now).
Funky, groovy, and upbeat but with a hints of remorse. That’s the theme in this mix.
Better things are coming, so just hold on… ’til the morning!

New winter mix for 2016 is about to drop, but i still cant decide what to title it. HAHAHA! Usually i say something “deeep” or someshit but im SO done with this horrible year i just wanna call it FUCKOFF2016GOODRIDDANCE!
So… ANY SUGGESTIONS??!!
This year has, however, been good for music. And given all the madness that has come this year and the angst we are about to receive 2017 with, i am actually hopeful we will see a resurgence of music as retaliation, and perhaps some fresh new fight-the-machine anthems … gleams of light as we stare into the coming darkness
How to keep your ears warm this winter: cover with large muffy earphones and pop in this special winter mix!
While not exactly independent or underground, these musicians don’t get much attention outside the audiophile circles. If there was justice in the world, we’d be hearing these tunes on the radio. (RADIO?? What the heck is that??)
Well I’ve compiled a mix of cool, yet energetic songs from some accomplished acts, as well as a few relatively unknowns and thrown in a couple of remixes you’re sure to enjoy while your windows frost over.
I tried to incorporate a winter theme here, obviously, but most of all what keeps us warm in the cold months: some hot fuzzy lubby dubb ❤ ❤ ❤ –– a lot of songs about LOVE in this mix… enjoy!

Goodbye 2015! You’ve been good to our ears. It’s time to open the champagne bottles and bring in the new year with some new tunes.
Indie faves like Borns, Beirut, and the mysterious Grimes put out some great new music. But don’t overlook underground acts like Houndmouth and Wild Child; they have some very enjoyable jams.
This year also saw the rise of overnight sensations like Alessia Cara, with an old-soul R&B track that will make you wondering what you’re doing at this party. Also, am I a hipster for liking Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood only when it’s covered by Ryan Adams? Yes. Yes, I am [hangs head in shame].
And lastly, I’ll let you in on a little secret: Matt Berninger (of The National) trained a parrot to pick out words from a hat to write the lyrics for EL VY ‘s Return to the Moon, #truestory 🙂 Enjoy!

I present a special Dodo mixtape, another re-upload from way back in 2010: a real chill, electronic, act called…
While being mostly electronic, this band makes soulful, textured music that is full of heart. They are so enjoyable you’ll be pressing the repeat button (if you have one). So uncork a good bottle of chianti and play this mix in the twilight hours. enjoy
A few years ago, around 2010, i made this mix for my wife. She had been gathering a (quite justified) reputation of unrepentant unpunctuality. It got so bad that people actually began liying to her about appointments, telling her they were half-an-hour or so earlier so that she could show up barely on time. This would later prove counter-productive because she caught on and would generously compensate… >_<
So I jokingly (but actually seriously) made this mix of some of our favorite jams that happened to mention time, or lateness in their lyrics or titles. The result was a very enjoyable mix that many friends said perfectly captured her personality of unfashionable late-ness. This, of course, did nothing to assuage it, but the theme in the mix yielded a surprisingly palatable album.
I don’t know why it’s taken me 5 years to upload it, but here it is… better late than never, aptly. Hope you like the music on your way to a late appointment 😉
