Quarter Inch Mixtape #11 – Hey, Who Really Cares?
Installment number eleven in our Mixtape series has arrived in the form of ‘Hey, Who Really Cares?’, 47 minutes of high quality tunes from Aoife Barry. Aoife writes about music on her wonderful blog, presents the Sweet Oblivion radio show on 2xm, writes about food on Adventures in Veg with an accompanying column in The Irish Independent’s ‘Weekend’ magazine and contributes to, amongst others, State.ie and The Anti-Room (where she recently wrote this excellent post on gender imbalance in the music press).
This is one of our favourite mixes so far because it feels like every song is genuinely important. Each song could be your “favourite song in the world”, and probably was at some point. This isn’t just cool music, this is essential. In a world where dozens of songs cry for your attention every week, each with a new novelty to distract you, this is a reaffirmation of belief in the emotive staying power of a great song. 13 of them in fact. Enjoy.
