I'm the type of person that is always making mixes, whether they are for others or not generally doesn't matter as I end up listening to them way more than the recipient probably ever could. This mix is a fairly typical one. I take a bit of everything I have been listening to and cater to a friend in particular(of course weeding out what they may hate). I love this mix. It's a greatest hits of my late winter to now. The artists are a mix up and some have already appeared in this blog. Hope you enjoy what you've not heard.
In the last post, I inserted a Lost Sounds' track. Well, on this mix, I've upped the take, adding in two more tracks from Lost Sounds related folks. The first track is by Mouserocket(fronted by LS's Alicja Trout) and is remixed by Jay Lindsey aka Jay Reatard. Also featured later on is a track by Lindsey himself. I really like both, as Lindsey shows his aptitude on both ends of the mic cord.
Also of note, the Beach House track. I am sad that I missed them when they played the Hi-Tone a few months ago. very sad. This track is my relaxation piece. There's nothing superb about it. At all. Really. I just love it for whatever reason. It sounds whole/complete and most things these days do not. Plenty of air to breathe in what sounds like an insecure track.
I like to augment the Beach House track with the Mice Parade song. I spaced them out on the cd, but they're great back to back.
I found the Oh No! Oh My! track on a Kitsune Maison compilation. I had heard them before through their myspace page, after learning that Tim of Snowglobe was to be joining them temporarily on tour, which then turned into a full time stay. I was unimpressed with the myspace songs and wrote them off completely until i heard this track. (Of note: I still remain unimpressed with all else I have heard.../sigh...why can't Snowglobe be bigger and better?).
It was hard to place the Lost Sounds track, seeing as how it is so abrupt at the inset.
The Caribou song should be lsitened to on headphones. This should also be applied to the Low track. I love their organ sound. We have one similar at the studio and I love the bass hums that resonate from it.
The Heart Attack= 1 Part Cee-Lo Green + Plantlife This track has been floating around the internet for a good while, but in case you have not heard it...
LOL The In Living Color piece is wtfdelicious(to me anyhow, not so much Soph). I found it on the mad decent(Diplo) page.
The rest is pretty much your standard fair of pretties and delights. Enjoys!

The mix itself!!
P.S. The Matthew Dear track is sexy and fabulous and excellent. I wish the rest of his album held up like so. [flat trumpet sound]
Also, my cover was chopped off. If you open the image in a new window, it should open properly.
