I'm missing a bunch of great stuff here simply because it didn't fit in well with the surroundings (and epic metal like Pelican and Red Sparrowes just doesn't lend itself to mixes very easily). Among the regrettable ommisions: Dalek, Okkervil River (I've overused them recently), The Fall, Mew (didn't hear either of the last two before I'd completed this mix), Animal Collective, My Education, Andrew Bird (it was either him or Patrick Wolf, ad Pat was a better fit), Akron/Family, Devendra Banhart, 6 Organs of Admittance and Harris Newman. But what's here more than adequately acquits itself.

Sorry, that previous comment read like faint praise...Very cool mix. Love the Black Mountain, Eels and Xiu Xiu picks especially...
