If you download my mix, please leave me a comment with your thoughts. It encourages me to do more mixes, tells me that people actually listen to them, gives me ideas for new mixes, etc.

    !!!!
    Jason, I love your mixes. I’ve listened to ‘Stuck up on Blog House’ countless times. And I’m totally psyched for this new one now too. YEA!

    That said, I am a little surprised to not see ‘Hercules & Love Affair’ anywhere. It’s all over the top for KEXP.

    Did it feel overdone to you? I’m so glad you introduced me to that album last year. Also Hot Chip and Cut Copy. If it wasn’t for my emerging obsession fort the Fabric nightclub in London and Erland Oye last year I might been able to take in more new stuff… Ha.

    PLEASE, keep the mixes in 2009. We the People depend on them for new ideas!

  2. ya, they made it 🙂 it’s not the ideal mix, though. the song i’m most disappointed about not including was friendly fire’s “paris” (aeroplane remix). check it out — definately a good one!

  3. oh, and… i’m psyched that 61:44 – Empire of the Sun – Walking on a Dream is on it too. Okay, really. Last post!
