So far, 2012 is showing a lot of promise. New albums from Miike Snow and School Of Seven Bells are pretty highly anticipated. The Twilight Sad and Errors have set the bar with outstanding new albums. And newcomers Grimes and Porcelain Raft are definitely ones to watch in the year ahead.
Not to mention Mojo magazine paying tribute to one of my favorite albums ever. In fact, there was frankly too much stuff from the past month to fit into one mix — hopefully you agree with my editorial decisions.
Also, check out last year’s mix tapes here… there’s good crap on all of them, promise.
