First mix of 2008? No...that jewel goes to Eiryn. Make sure you download her mix via the link in the post below. It is ridiculously good.
For this mix, nothing special--just an assemblage of old and recent favorites with no binding theme other than my liking.
I know I have some artist repeats: the Grifters and Mice Parade. But they are stand-up tracks, regardless. Maybe you'll find something worth your time.
I have to say that if you listen to nothing else on this mix, at least give the outro of "Stand!" your full attention, as it comprises the baddest-ass 51 seconds in the history of recorded music.
