Happy April, everyone! In honor of the month, the weather and the holidays, this week’s Mix Tape is all about April and the showers that bring May flowers. Original, yeah? Whatevs.
So it turns out the reason the upload kept failing is because MediaFire now has a 100MB limit per file. No worries, that just means I’ll have to make this Mix Tape a double album!
I wanted the songs that make up this list to be from all over the music map, so maybe you’ll come across a style or artist you’ve not heard much of before. And wouldn’t it be great if you decide you like it?
