For the third year in a row, we’ve turned to master bootlegger team9 to take some of our favorite songs of the year and mash them together. On Stereogum & team9 Present… MySplice III you’ll hear familiar blog hits from artists like Lykke Li, of Montreal, the Breeders, Bloc Party, Crystal Castles, and Beck remixed with beats and vocals borrowed from some of the year’s most inescapable pop hits. (There are some oldies thrown in, too.)

As always with our original compilations, you may download all the tracks for free, as individual MP3s, ZIP or torrent. There is no better way to celebrate 2008 for no money.

One hitch: we need an album cover! You’re creative, will you make one for us?

All covers must be sized 500×500 pixels and display this title:

Stereogum & team9 Present… MySplice III

Post a .jpg link in the comments or e-mail it to You have until this Thursday 12/18 at 6 PM EST. We’ll post the best one Friday and the reader who created it will get a $50 gift card, redeemable for millions of items. (So use your real e-mail address if you submit via comment.)

UPDATE: And here’s the winning cover, courtesy of Stereogum reader Mark E. Thanks Mark E.

If you liked those, we recommend team9′s brand new original album We Don’t Disco. It’s a little bit ambient, a little bit pop, a little bit electro, and available as a free download via Creative Commons license. Download at along with remix packs so you can put your own spin on it.

MySplice.06 and MySplice 2.0 are still available, too.


Enjoy, and happy holidays squid brains.

    um, living legend = someone who is ALIVE and legendary….

  3. The untimely death of Heath Ledger aside, Team9 kills it once again..
    However, im undecided as to which “lockdown’ remix is better, this or Dj Earworms reckoner mix

    WHOA to the killers/arcade fire. ridiculously good.

  5. Yes! Merry Christmas to me! I always get excited for Mysplice! Killed it like ALWAYS!

  6. Good After Time is the best of all the songs.

    Great stuff here.

    these are all pretty decent but feels a little a little less inspired than last years mash up… or at least none of the tracks blew me away like rocKnife did.

    • I’m in total agreement with you there. Roc Knife was my favourite track off of last year’s Mysplice. I was a little bit disappointed. I think my favourite off this year’s is Good After Time.

    As expected, great stuff from Team9, but I don’t hear an insta-classic like 2006′s “Cold War Fiasco” in there.

    • Bender Bending Rodriguez  |   Posted on Dec 17th, 2008 0

      But hey, I’m not complaining! I’m just reminding myself how nukular Cold War Fiasco was! A few of these mashes will no doubt be in my constant rotation. Cheers, T9!

    Yeah I like his old stuff better than his new stuff.

  12. My Entry, Thankyou, Enjoy:

  13. The Katy Perry one actually gives her some artistic merit. Wow.

    I’ve always wondered how these guys get the isolated instrument/vocal tracks though, otherwise I’d have a go myself.

  14. KL  |   Posted on Dec 17th, 2008 0

    Upon reflection, I do like his new stuff too.

    Hey, I PEE GOLD: Best. Album. Cover. EVER.

    I LOVE MISPLICES <3 i have both old ones

  37. Hey Monster, I love you, I wanna have your babies!

  38. This is my first year really diggin into all this music, and these are SICKEST mashups I’ve heard.
    They are subtle, not tryin to hard, and they work.. Kanye V. Rolling Stones & of Montreal V. Blondie are my favs!

  39. Paul  |   Posted on Dec 20th, 2008 0

    The Ben Folds/T.I. track should be a silly gimmick, but it works so well! Well done.

  40. Selena  |   Posted on Jan 14th, 2009 0

    Crystal Holiday and Good After Time moving onto my iPod now!

  41. liolia  |   Posted on Apr 29th, 2009 0

    The Sound of Roses cannot be downloaded. The link is broken.

  44. Roc Knife was my favourite track off of last year’s Mysplice. I was a little bit disappointed. I think my favourite off this year’s is Good After Time.
