Tom Smith Birthday Mix 2014!

https://soundcloud.com/tom-smith-tlasila-ksv/tom-smith-birthday-mix-2014-04

(Click the image for the link!)

Friends, enthusiasts, all-comers,

One of the greatest things about living in Germany is that you're more or less duty bound to give OTHERS presents on your birthday. I love this tradition. You usually bring cakes or pies to work, but as sending each of you pastries is impractical, here's a two-hour birthday mixtape instead. I hope you'll find it to your liking. Thanks for the love (clotted or otherwise) - now have a bit in return!

Best Wishes,

Tom

Karl Schmidt Verlag: New Release Packet Delayed 24 Hours... OK?

Hi Again,

Kinda swamped here at HQ, so I'll probably need another day before the next seven (two new, new albums, and five of the holdovers from December 2013) can be flung from the launch site.

What you can look forward to (dreading):


Alright?

Until then,

TS
