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.

Strands 1 and 2

Here I present for your (hopeful) pleasure Strand 1 and Strand 2. Strand 1 is of the rock variety, as per usual, and 2 consists of electronic and hip hop entertainment. I won't bother with spilling my favorites. Both of these have seen some severe revision, as they originated as one mix initially. Hope you enjoy. Also, dubstep somewhat returns. Yoni Wolf is Why?, or as his current role entails the singer of Why?. That track is from his recent Daytrotter Session. The Seabear track is an older one, from 2002. I can't think of any other notes.

These were culled from what I've been listening to lately. As a breath of fresh air for all of you that hate when I post older rock, You'll be pleased to know that the oldest thing here is Dead Boys.

Lemme know what you thought: what you hated, loved, meh-ed, liked, disliked, got married to and had kids with, etc.

BWSHFTM/Love Jones? Not at Home

A double load for the New Year. Happy belated, btw. It's been a while and all that really means is that I've accumulated a mass of treasures or you've gotten bored enough to start listening to Owl City. Either way, we're both back now in this new year and we can be friends again and share these wonderful musical gemstones shiny shiny pop em buoy! Sorry, anyhow, I had 3 mixes prepped and culled them down to 2, in the process genre-lizing them.

BWSHFTM is more rock oriented, but that's not to say that it's boring. As per usual, it contains a good deal of garage/60s rock, but also some more indie pop oriented material as well. On top of that, a bit of noise too. Yay!! Favorites for me are tracks 1, 2, 4, 5, 7...I can't do this. I like all of them, so instead will list my least favorite: Track 11 is my red headed step child(only here because his daddy is paying the light bill).

Love Jones? is more dancey and hip hop related. There's the ever present Grime remix, the Cali rap, the breathy vocals of the XX return, the traditional dirty electro(of huoratron in this case, yumm!), new Cool Kids, a fresh minimal techno track with an indie rock super star on vocals, and a bunch of random remixes and weird shit thrown in for effect! Check the interpolation/spin of White Town's "Never Be Your Woman". Remember that song? 5th grade for me, holmes. Faves are: 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 12, 14, and 15. But wait!? What's missing here? That's right. It's Dubstep.

Love them or hate them, but i implore you to listen to them.

Lemme know what you thought! If you loved something, but feel lazy and don't want to find it for yourself I'm more than happy to scavenge the google trenches for you.

P.S. Ride's daddy is indeed not paying my light bills.
P.P.S. Would you listen or stream if I got a show on WEVL 89.9? I'm just curious. I think I am going to apply for one of their open spots. The main one I'd like would be Thursdays 4-6pm.
