All week LPR staff and friends are going to be posting playlists of our favorite songs and albums from college and high school in honor CMJ. You’ll be able to get new mixtapes every day of CMJ right here on Tumblr, or over at our blog.
This series of playlists is partially inspired by the great episode of All Songs Considered called The Most Important Band of Your College Years, which aired on September 4th of this year. It’s a great episode. And maybe an apt spot for us to get some inspiration from, since we’ll be hosting a NPR Music event for CMJ on Wednesday with Flying Lotus, Deathgrips, and Buke & Gase. This is our version of that All Songs Considered episode, for CMJ.
Have any suggestions? Want to tell us your favorite bands, songs, and albums from school? Leave a comment or tweet it to us. We’ll share your suggestions on Twitter, and maybe even put together a playlist with your suggestions for the end of the week.
