Space Mountain

Unifying prompt = "lush." The original use of this tape was Arapahoe Basin. Relatively sci-fi. One of my shred-favorites. An AprèsSki classic. 10 sec crossfade. No shuffle.


Hypomaniac; Snogging the Flames

46 mins

A thoughtful mixtape for Tash, Coyote Mike, Halldór Helgason and Fridtjof Sæther Tischendorf at Stratton. (Do you like guitars, crying, playing with fire, screaming in cars, riding wild beasts, and controlling rollercoasters with the width, breadth, and soul of your singing voice? Good.) 10 sec crossfade. No shuffle.


Cheese and Trumpets and Something Serious

42 mins

Designed for solo snowboard sessions at Stratton, winter of '18/'19. I am dramatic, not cool, and very fun. 10 sec crossfade. No shuffle.


Oh Heartbeasts, My Heartbeasts

No one makes a mixtape quite like me...'cept Jack in Titanic. This one's been brewing 14 days. It speaks to adolescent passion for poetry, fire, and solitude. Fearful-avoidant indulgences of lyrical dissociation. Sensitive moments. Sad. Indie-rock of varying intensities and fidelities. Guitars. I was going through it at the time. 10 sec crossfade. No shuffle.


Sludge Metal and Pep with Murray

Yes, I included a Foo Fighters song. Deal with it. 10 sec crossfade. No shuffle.

Crystals, Minerals, Rocks, and Stones

45 mins

This was my 2018 birthday mix. Electro, psychedelic, trance, humor, hellfire, guitar solos, B-sides, anger, angst, ecstasy, root chakras, release, and rock royalty for dirtbags and dads... Great for dancing, cruising, hacking, crafting, surfing the void, and lighting mountains on fire. 10 sec crossfade. No shuffle.


What Would Al Do?, Ep 11

90 mins

While this playlist does not include any songs by Weird Al Yankovic, WWAD features music that I think he would appreciate. New wave, manic punk, hair metal, pop culture, guitars, synth and flamboyance. Emphasis in the 80s. 10 sec crossfade. No shuffle.

Not a Robot, Sat Shred
