Monthly Mix

Stereogum Monthly Mix: November 2010

Back again with another monthly mix which, per its title, you should continue to expect monthly. We’re glad you guys enjoyed the last installment, and thoroughly appreciate the feedback. In case you missed October’s launch, the idea here is to offer a concentrated compendium of the finest recent freely available MP3s, selected from (though not limited to) the universe of tracks we’ve posted in recent weeks. It’s a filtration service for those that don’t have the time to hear everything on the internet, and a chance for us to highlight the internet’s finer wares. Future installments may feature group editorial picks, or mixes by other contributors. Like last month, your DJ today is me. Welcome.

November’s mix features 13 tracks sequenced for mood and framed to play to, maybe even treat the hangover you woke up with, whether it’s a disorder electoral, seasonal, or free radical in origin. There’s despair via Crystal Castles & Robert Smith and Brooklyn post-punk upstarts Regal Degal, leavened with the uplifting digital tropics of beat-minded Blood Diamonds’ “Heart” or the boy-girl Philly fuzz of Reading Rainbow. There’s a pair of sublime hypnotics via the extended electronics of Physical Therapy’s “Holy Other” remix and the disorientingly textured, pretty darkness of Porcelain Raft’s “Back Of My Eyes.” Anxiety spikes come courtesy of Kingdom, Mr. Dream, and the Soft Moon, as does resolution compliments of a spare acoustic exeunt from Family Band. And more. It’s 13 tracks. Download the zip, check the tracklist:
