Don't understand why this directive causes a 404 in mp3 only

On my site, music can be played by going to
http://mysite.com/music/billyjoel/song.mp3 (for example).
You can download the same song by going to
http://mysite.com/music/billyjoel/download/song.mp3.

The path including “download” is aliased and the default mime type
changed as shown here:

location /music/billyjoel/play/ {
types{
audio/mp3 mp3;
}
}

location /music/billyjoel/download/ {
types{}
default_type application/octet-stream;
alias /(location of root goes here)/music/billyjoel/play/;
}

This works as intended. However, I set expires and access_log directives
for css/jpg/woff, etc. like this and the mp3 will no longer download and
I get a 404 with a “file not found” error in the error logs:

location ~* ^.+.(mp3|jpg|css)$ {
expires modified +30d;
access_log off;
}

Location with regex will get matched first,
Looks like the download request for mp3 files get served by: location ~* ^.+\.(mp3|jpg|css)$
and since you didn’t set any alias or location over there, it will
returns
404.
