Greetings, today at 2.42 I bring you this group of 12 songs. If anyone is wondering why the title is in French it’s because it purely looks better than “A Mixtape of New Songs” which is the translation. Basically, each of the 12 tracks is off the band’s new album or single, and each track is great in its own right. Tapes ‘N Tapes return with a jangly, organ laden track in Hang Them All. Recent Bedroom is my personal favourite track off the Atlas Sound (Bradford Cox of Deerhunter) record, Let The Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel, with its hazy atmosphere and sharp, echoing guitars. Ex-Pitchfork journo, Cadence Weapon features with We Move Away, off his second album, Afterparty Babies, and Foals’ epic closer Tron is also incorporated in the mixtape. Every track is amazing, it would just take me too long to describe them all to you now, especially at this late an hour. But do DL them all, they are all worth it, and a special mention goes to £4 by These New Puritans for being the most played song on my iTunes.

P.S : all these mp3s are now “right click and save as…” ones, which should make things a lot easier, tell me there are any problems.
