Guest Mixtape: Jessica Weiss (Fear Of Men)

These are songs that I’ve become totally obsessed with. I go through phases of intensly loving a song and listening to it ten times a day for a week, singing it in my head or out loud every moment of the day. I’ve never listened to them all together, because for the lifespan of one of these phases, I’m only interested in the single song so I thought it would be cool to hear them all together, for me at least – Jess

The few lines above belong to the pen (keyboard) that wrote the best lyrics which we came across this year: the pen (keyboard again?) of Fear Of Men‘s Jessica Weiss. Enclosed to the mail that we received, there was the mixtape that she kindly compiled for us. Check it out below, alongside with its tracklist.
