Yeah, I can handle this if the deadline isn't for a while. Put me down as a yes.

So enamored. Her voice is just mesmerizing. Spent most of my days over break just watching various live videos of her. There's some amazing sessions with La Blogoteque (sp?) where she's just walking crowded streets in France absolutely nailing stripped-down versions of her tunes.

Ed really only has a debut full length out, "+", as well as a collaborative EP with Yelawolf, "Slumdon Bridge". Check those out.

I feel sick.

This idea is cool, because in theory, people can keep sending in five-song mixes for artists that haven't been used yet, and if the interest is there, and the people putting it together keep wanting to put it together, it could continue indefinitely.

Haven't gotten to Replacements or Bjork yet (excited to), but fuck, Rolo Tomassi are very good.

Felt bad about leaving this one off too, but what can you do? Too many fantastic songs haha.

Seeing as they're up there with Prince and the '91 Twins as the only good things to come out of Minnesota in the last 30+ years I'd get on that

Sorry man, couldn't resist haha
You act like Husker Du and the '87 Twins don't exist! Pshh, whatever.

Obviously I'm partial to Motion City Soundtrack and the reigning WNBA Champions Minnesota Lynx, but I was keeping with the pattern.

Haha the '91 Twins came to mind immediately because my grandfather's a huge Braves fan and has been bitching about that Series my entire life. My bad on the Du though, I'll give you that one too.

MCS are great too but they ain't no 'Mats son. And my knowledge of the WNBA is about as extensive as my knowledge of what you had for lunch, so either I'm a women's pro sports fanatic and I'm staring in your window all day or I don't know shit about the WNBA haha. Up to you to decide.
The only reason I know they won a championship is because I live in the city it happened in, and it's the only sports feat we've got to our name since......well, the '91 Twins, lol. We take pride where we can get it, which is basically only in gay people and women's basketball, haha.

I'm actually amazed how much influential Minnesota music I'm not familiar with. Really excited to check out your mix after I get home from work; hopefully it encourages me to dig into their back catalog.

No "Bat Dance" is especially surprising out of the Prince mix.
Choctaw would've had it in there, I bet.

The Scottabot's all-time fav.
Has he ever actually sang parts of it on the show before? Because I can't remember if he has, but I have the sudden urge of really, really wanting to hear it.

Yeah, I feel like that's going to be a recurring problem with this.

So with George's permission, I've decided to put all the mixes (save for the Bjork b-side; sorry again, George!) to date into Spotify playlists in an attempt to curb people's troubles keeping the download links up. Obviously if you want to keep the songs, grab the actual mix links, but I figured this would be a nice alternative. I'll keep doing these as more mixes are added. FYI, the Rolo Tomassi one only shows one track in the webpage, but once you open up Spotify, they're all there. Have fun!

Introduce us to your favourite artists: The Mixtapes

3.georgedcc - Bjork
4.Nuns on a Bus - The Dismemberment Plan

So after running into a few more of these that didn't have all five tracks on Spotify, I'm gonna pull the plug on the playlists I had made. For one, it takes away from the 'feel' of a mixtape to be able to just stream them, and two, it wasn't fair to the few users who would only have four of their songs heard rather than the full five.
