Radio Free Silver Lake 2008 Mix

Happy holidays to everyone. You've been, I dunno, pretty good this last year, so twenty-five fantastic local bands have donated a song each as a nice big collective present to you...

Here's what your first great mix of the new year contains:

1) EverestRebels & Roses (off of their upcoming album Ghost Notes)
2) Letting Up Despite Great Faults - I’m Not Real Today (off their next album)
3) Molecules - Vivian’s Epiphany Part 3 (off their next album)
4) Signal Hill - The Dead Vineyard (a demo track off their next album)
5) The Spires - You Got What You Want (off their album Sky Sky)
6) Tandemoro - Plane Crash (off their holiday EP)
7) Xu Xu Fang - Good Times (a new version of the track off their upcoming album)
8) The Afternoons - Grafitti Artist (off their upcoming album)
9) The Devils Romantics - Cicada (off their upcoming album)
10) Dirt Bird - Cliftons #2 (off their upcoming album)
11) Castledoor - The Birds And The Fleas (off their Follow The Dove EP)
12) Rademacher - If You’ve Got Some Magic (off their album Stunts)
13) The Happy HollowsMonster Room (off their upcoming album)
14) Radars To The Sky - Prufrock (off their Big Bang EP)
15) The Hectors - A Million Fingers (off their Sometimes They Collide EP)
16) Tigers Can Bite YouGold Nugget (off their self-titled album)
17) The Flying Tourbillon OrchestraIn A Dream (off their Escapements EP)
18) Marvelous Toy - Jen, Did I Mean More To You? (off their Disappearing Heart EP)
19) Black Kites - What To Do In Case Of Emergency (off of their Paper Heart EP)
20) Hearts Of Palm UKJonathan (That Fucking Motherfucker) (off their demo cd)
21) Eagle & Talon - They’re So Sharp (off their EP)
22) Amateurs - Shadowbox (off their album Speak Easy)
23) Death To Anders - Camera Lens (off their upcoming album)
24) Le Switch - Vaudeville (off their Hello Today EP)
25) The MonolatorsHoliday Message From Mechanon (hard to explain, really...)

I really recommend downloading all these tracks and putting them in a play list in this order. If you want to burn a cd of this, you'll unfortunately need to abbreviate it down to eighteen tracks (and save the rest for another). Makes a great present for friends.

Many thanks to all the bands who took part in this. Please do right by them in 08 by purchasing music directly from them via their sites or at shows. They really deserve your support.

Wow, really great stuff... I was in serious need of something new to listen to at work today! By the way, If you didn't get a chance to see the Rhone Occupation at Hotel Cafe last week, Check out http://picasaweb.google.com/matt.salas/TheRhoneOccupationHotelCafColorEdits?authkey=WXIk2qBMtEE for pictures, and www.myspace.com/jakedillansummers for some video clips from the show!
