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.

Weird Pains, Fat Swag

Don't feel very wordy, as I just woke up. Hope you enjoy these.

Notes on Weird Pains:(Rock Mix)
John Darnielle of Mountaingoats fame makes up half of The Extra Lens(formerly Extra Glens).
Citay is comprised of ex-Piano Magic and ex-The Fucking Champs.
The way the guy from Porcelain Raft pronounces "Tip" makes me giggle snort sometimes.
The Eno tracks are both from his new Warp Records debut.
The primary producer behind Donso is Ed Banger Records' Insane-O son, Krazy Baldhead.
The Reatard/Deerhunter tracks are from a split 7 in. from 2008.

Notes on Fat Swag:(Electronic/Rap Mix)
The James Blake track is a Feist cover, and is the initial single from his upcoming full length. I'm superly on this guy's jock.
I don't know anything about Loden, but that first track makes me supremely happy.
The Big L track is not necessarily a new one. He died in 1999, but the label powers that be have seen fit to lift old verses of his and add new production underneath. This is a re-work of one of my favorite tracks of his "The Danger Zone".
Child Rebel Soldier is the bastard spawn of Kanye West, Pharell, and Lupe Fiasco. The first hint of the group's existence surfaced in 2007 or 08(I can't recall) on a Kanye Mixtape, but only as a snippet. Nothing was ever fully released until this track last week.
Teebs is a young up and comer on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder imprint.

Oct's Arms

I snagged a dance party pic from my facebook, made a lotus and an almost Shiva. The name of this mix is admittedly dumb, but how many of them aren't? Anyhow, about the music...
There's little here by way of dance or hip hop. There's only one track that I'd consider experimental. This is just of note.

I'd never heard The intelligence until I read a pitchfork review of their latest album, Males. I checked it out and liked the whole album so much that I put three of the tracks here for your enjoyment. I can track down the full album again if you would like. Just comment. The Deerhunter tracks(excluding the remix) are off of their latest, Halcyon Digest. If you want a link for that, I'm happy to provide. Navajo Bixby has been seen around FAGL before on the Strand 1 Mix . I don't know much about French Horn Rebellion, but I bet you'll like it. Prettiness follows with Sunset, Houses, and a new Belle and Sebastian track. The biggest WTF moment of this mix has to come from El-P and Chin Chin singer Wilder Zoby. Apparently Zoby recorded the synth solo toward the end of the track in one take at 5 in the morning while incredibly drunk and stoned. Nothing like this has ever come out of El-P's fingers before.

I <3 TOBACCO(and anti-pop). I know you're heartbroken because there's only one mix here. I couldn't bring myself to plow your ears with a thousand songs at this time. Anyway, here: Image and video hosting by TinyPic
