Fuckin' Arrows (10June2008)

This week's toxic heat could only mean that summer's already here. Thus I present what will surely be the first of many mixes offered this summer.
BONUS! While listening consider these questions:
- Have Sigur Rós been listening to a lot of Animal Collective?
- Why did the Beach Boys drop this superior chorus?
- Is anything more pleasurable than hearing Prince sing the words "Does Not Compute"?
- Was the Tiffany version necessary after listening to the original?
- Is Ladyhawke ripping Cyndi Lauper?
- Is this Love song my favorite song of ever, at this very moment? (answer: YES.)
- Will the Hold Steady ever give their livers a rest? (answer: NO.)

- Where can I download this mix? (answer: HERE!)
