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.

5 for X-Mans

dear Friends, countrymen, strangers, internet fiends, and lovers,

It's been quite a while since I've doled out full albums.  As you may(or may not) know, in the past when I have posted full albums, I have done so because I found them to be essential.  Well, simply put, this has not changed.  I find these five to be no exception, and fully endorse all of them.  For this bout, I'm going with relative unknowns that have struck a major chord with me(harrr:  pun!).  Additionally, I've tried to bring you albums as diverse as I plausibly can while still making sure they're albums that I truly love(and not fake internet love for cred).  From the bright, bubbly sounds of Luciano's soft, boyish techno to the screeching guitars or whatever the fuck that is within the Electric Bunnies to the no frills, just-fuck-you rock of the two piece JEFF the Brotherhood to the Geoff Barrow(of Portishead) led Kraut rock loving Beak> album, it's all there(as intact as my terrible grammar in these posts).
To stop blabbing and bring the goods:

Life's a Fucking Blur

Isn't it though? I know I promised this mix earlier in the week, but several things happened and I didn't get around to it(such as yesterday having no power for a majority of the day). Anyhow, here it is. I actually had another one that was all rock oriented, but decided it wasn't good enough. I hate when Pitchfork beats me in putting out tracks. It's been a goal of mine to attempt to beat them on getting out relative unknowns(G-Side in this instance). On the other side of it, I did get Chiddy Bang, Theophilus London, opiou, Pill, and a couple of others :D If you're not a fan of electronic music, hip hop, rap, american/brit urban stylings, or amalgamations of all of these, then I dunno if I'd bother with this. Otherwise, if you do enjoy these things, mmmmm yes.  As always, click either picture for the zip.

I really feel like this is one of the best mixes I've made in a while with all heavy hitters, no fillers. Yum.

I've got nothing else. Hope you enjoy. Lemme know.
