Tapes by JET Vol. 002: Killdeer

While I try to keep the clockwork smooth with my 1st and 15th of the month muxes, leave it to one of my MPLS cohorts to drop a new Tapes by JET without warning. It's yet another great mix (like Vol. 001: Goldfinch) that is a nice change of pace from my usual randomness. Hit her up on Twitter to do whatever it is you do when you communicate with people on Twitter.

You know the drill.

1. Survive - Hourglass (The Guest [Soundtrack])
2. Broods - Mother & Father (Evergreen)
3. Night Terrors of 1927 - When You Were Mine (feat. Tegan and Sara) (Everything's Coming Up Roses)
4. Frank Turner - Losing Days (Tape Deck Heart)
5. Howler - Don't Wanna (World of Joy)
6. The Scandals - Gold Hearts (The Sound of Your Stereo)
7. Molly and the Zombies - Long Drives (Single)
8. C-Duncan - Say (Single)
9. Tanlines - Slipping Away (Highlights)

Mux167: Springtime For Mr. Mux / Hall of Famer #3


1. Purity Ring - Bodyache (Another Eternity)
2. The Singles - Candy (Single)
3. Chromatics - I Can Never Be Myself When You're Around (Dear Tommy)
4. Belle and Sebastian - The Party Line (Girls In Peacetime Just Want To Dance)
5. David Bowie - Let's Dance (Let's Dance)
6. Felix Da Housecat - What She Wants (feat. James Murphy) (Devon Dazzle and the Neon Fever)
7. The Jimi Hendrix Experience - The Wind Cries Mary (Are You Experienced?)
8. Justin Timberlake - Don't Hold The Wall (The 20/20 Experience Vol. I)
9. Spoon - Outlier (They Want My Soul)
10. Tortoise - Ten-Day Interval (TNT)
11. Caribou - Pelican Narrows (The Milk of Human Kindness)
12. Dan Deacon - Mind On Fire (Gliss Riffer)

I'm far too lazy to find all the separate muxes, but Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience Vol. 1 is the third album to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Said Hall is reserved for those rarest of albums in which all tracks miraculously find their way onto a mux. The first winner of such acclaim was Japandroids for their 2009 album Post-Nothing, followed by Cloud Nothing's Attack On Memory in 2012. Truly, no higher honor can be bestowed upon an album that is slowly-but-surely cannibalized by a seven-years-running, blog-based mixtape series.

Tier 2 - Pretty Good
The Imitation Game
The Theory of Everything
The Grand Budapest Hotel

Tier 3 - Ambivalent

Weak year except Whiplash, which is miles ahead of anything else the same way Upstream Color was for last year.
