This month’s mix tape really hits the cross-section of this humble blog’s musical scope. Granted, there are no new wave heroes this month — but the selections run the gambit from synthpop, dreampop, shoegaze, indie, and good old-fashioned britpop.
There’s new M83, Noel Gallagher, DJ Shadow.. plus plenty of other favorites from the month that saw our 1 year anniversary and our pretty new site redesign.
Download or stream it below — and don’t forget we’ve got many more for you to enjoy right here.
