Check out this mix on @8tracks: old wild hearts, broke and stranded by matildawhiskey.
Almost exactly five years ago, my hobo sister and I were both feeling restless and wishing we could have an adventure together, and I made a mix that was the imaginary soundtrack to the adventure we would have had. I’m feeling much the same way today, so I made a new one. This one’s for restlessness and longing, and for finding beauty in the grimy places. And for my hobo sister.
