shout out to nada for turning me onto some of these bands (arms, delta spirit, best coast, surfer blood, dan mangan, beach house, she & him) via our neverending mixtape trades. also kudos to bobby for throwing an awesome best of 2010 mixtape swap party which led to me making physical copies of this mix with photocopied cut and paste covers inside a ziplock sandwich bag. (i still have a few of these covers if anyone wants one).
