Stereogum & team9 Present… MySplice III: 2008 Mashed Up

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:

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.
