Welcome. These are called mixes. If you like the artists, go buy their music. I might do that too! More likely, if you like the artist, go see their live show.

All of these tracks were co-opted from other blogs muahaha. Enjoy them all. This mix is somewhat hap-hazard and rushed, as I have been pretty busy lately. I went to the Zoo for free today and saw the Polar Bears swimming. Love. I'm new to most of these people. The Ris Paul Ric is a couple of years old and is a definite standout. The Diplo remix of Spoon is from this past week. The Fagget Fairys track has been on constant in my car.

Also, I'm enjoying the new Beach House quite a bit, and am excited because they're palying the Hi-Tone in MArch. I wanted to go see them when they came this past Fall/Summer whenever it was, but they were opening for the National...boo...now they're headlining, yay! Plenty of great shows coming up at the Hi-Tone...Band of Horses, Black Lips, Beach House, High On Fire, Jason Isbell...

Whatever You Want

Well, Pimp C died this week. It's been a good couple of weeks, but this isn't the place for me to talk about that.

Anyhow, the music this week starts off with The Monks, a band that I am just now getting into. I'm glad that I have though. Their Black Monk Time album from 1966 is flipping amazing proto-punk/rhythm driven kraut rock. I was immediately in love and if you look under this post, you'll find a video of theirs.

A new Wu track is included from the 8 Diagrams album. The rest is standard fare. I mean, I'm here to supply this music, not write about it too much. I like it because I do. Maybe you'll like something in it as well, but I find it pointless to just list reasons why I like the songs. haha just enjoy. Contradicting myself, in "Roberta C" from casiotone, I love the lyric "scrabble high score 409". Recently, I've been playing a lot of scrabulous on facebook and I'm still trying to beat that 409. I keep hovering between 310-350 range. Also, I'm going to go ahead and apologize for the Andy Kim song. It's been in a commercial lately and has been in my head a good deal.

Yall take it easy. The holidays will be here soon.
