This new development at Drum
I found rather funny. I found a similar earlier iteration of such practices as Smith's here
Audiofile Summer Mix-"L'Honte de Francophones"
has a request for readers to create a cd from free downloads available on the internet. Here is what I put together over a couple of days:
1. The Young Tradition-Northern Drive-Now You Know
2. Sufjan Stevens-Illinois-Chicago
3. Trash Can Sinatras-Acoustic on Morning Becomes Eclectic-A Coda
4. The Lucksmiths-San Francisco EP-The Chapter In Your Life Entitled San Francisco
5. Innocence Mission-Befriended-Tomorrow On The Runway
6. Elizabeth Harper-Trouble In The Palace
7. Bloc Party-Silent Alarm-Banquet
8. Ben Lee-Gamble Everything for Love EP-The Serious Mythology of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs
9. Amityville-How you been
11. Trembling Blue Stars-Alive To Every Smile-The Ghost Of An Unkissed Kiss
12. The Arcade Fire-Funeral-Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)
The Trash Can Sinatras have a nice acoustic cover on the mekons' "ghost of american astronauts"
on the download page
, along with a generous helping of other knickknacks.
