OUR SLEEP IS LIKE A MIX-TAPE: #1

I love making Mix-Tapes, or more appropriately, Mix-CD's. I made quite a few last year, and feel they are a good way of recapping last year's goings on in the blogs, (since that's how most of the tracks came to my attention). Below you'll see 12 out of the 20 tracks that were on the first one I made. It starts with the voice of Colin Roberts, former editor of Drowned in Sound. The mix-tape is fairly subdued and peaceful, although No Scrubs is great for novelty's sake, and each track stands up on its own two feet.

Carmichael - Treadmill
Monkey Swallows The Universe - Sheffield Shanty

Can anyone hook me up with his remix of Mariah's Emotions on zshare or another file sharing program? I heard it on his MySpace and am dying for it.
