This is the home of the 'Sounds Vintage' mixtape series. The theme of these mixtapes is 'new music in old styles,' they are comprised of music released after 1999 that sounds like it could have been made between 1920 and 1980. This covers a wide range of styles, from swing to rock and roll to psychedelic and progressive rock, garage rock, punk rock, surf, funk, soul, country and americana, bluegrass, jive, jazz, and latin. Each of the mixes focuses on one style or lyrical theme. These are not just random collections of songs, but songs that go well together.
I suppose you could best think of it as what an modern 'oldies' radio station should be playing, instead of adding music from the 80s to the mix like they've been doing.
Volume 3: Relentless
This is a long summer rock and roller for 2013. It doesn't let up until the very end, and focuses on 50s/60s-styles of rock and roll.
Volume 2: Divine Advice
The followup from 2012. Long, laid back, late 60's through late 70's styles of baroque, rock, folk, soul, and psychedelic, with a lyrical theme.
Volume 1: 'Sounds Vintage'
The original 2009 mixtape by J. Holland that started all of this. Short, sweet, and rooted in 50s/60s styles.
