Comment:

Made as the third mix in a sort of trilogy. This is a response to a complicated romantic situation that ended awkwardly and is dragging itself to death. It's something of a long angry "no."

I wanted to explore breakbeats, atonal music, and experimental music with this. There are certainly some traditional structures here but it's all relatively indie or unusual in some way. My favorite songs are Yeasayer - Sunrise and the Reich piece. There's a printable size cover and tracklist if you download the zip file with the mp3s.

You're right, we posted almost simultaneously an April mix! From yours I like the Regina Spektor track a lot. She & Him have made a really good album.. The whole concept of the mix came from them. They really sound like April. :)

Used that very same Yeasayer song on a mix last month, only it started it off instead of ending. I'll be anxious to hear this one.
