Everything has been pretty easy since I've learned how to be careful. People are the hardest thing. When I see people together, they don't talk. Not really. They don't say what they mean. Then they, they have the other... the sexy stuff. Whenever they want. I've been much too shy to ever do the sexy stuff. I mean, do it with someone who's awake. Someday maybe I'll get to do it - awake - without the blood part...
50+ relatively unknown indie rock bands that could easily be the next big thing. It's been over a year since the last mix of this series so I felt it was long overdue to showcase a little indie talent.

let us wake up inside a stranger's bed

A little mix to remind us of the pure goodness of folk & acoustic music. Includes all my recent favourites... And chances are you'll find a new favourite song in this mix too.
Featuring WIld Child, Half Moon Run, & Lord Huron.
But don't take Ben's word for it (even though he invented electricity** and is certainly qualified to have an opinion on the matter), give it a figurative spin!

A small collection of tracks that are just plain scary (or creepy). The ones that give me chills out of fear and not just because they are particularly beautiful or "haunting", but because there is some hidden emotion. Definitely not a mainstream mix but if you feel it too then keep listening.
The best songs you've probably never heard. Most are recent releases and some of these bands I am absolutely obsessed with right now.
Featuring great artists such as Smallpools, Magic Man, & Elephant Eyes. But let's be honest here, at the end of the day, we all dream of that sweet Indian Summer..
Here's to the classy nights we wished we could remember. Drink up, spend money... Because this world's too grand to not enjoy the finer things in life.

A mix dedicated to the king of cool. He has worked with The Black Keys, Electric Guest, Beck, U2 and plenty more artists and always delivers the best. Some may know him as Brian Burton or as Danger Mouse but he is my favourite producer and he's freaking unbelievable.
Just listen to awesomeness at its best.
