For the second year in a row, I’ve taken it upon myself to boil down some of what I feel is the year’s best music and boil it down to an accessible CD-80-friendly package, with the additional challenge of accompanying them with clips from some of the year’s more notable films. I pushed myself to the limits of my time-cruching abilities this time around; I still fell just shy of my 40-track goal, but I did cram in more movies this year, thanks partially to the brilliant idea of including some choice soundtrack snippets as well.
It’s also a more eclectic bunch than last year: this time around, there’s a little more punk, a little more folk, a little more metal, and a little more hip-hop and r n’ b. I hope you’ll enjoy it. Below, you’ll find a download link with »

Just can't get enough, once sang Depeche Mode. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I'm listening to other tunes right now. Check out my August playlist for some desktop and mobile device-worthy tuneage.
"Fisherman" The Peach Kings Handsome Moves (Peach Kings) - So damn infectious, it is! Hot chick vocals and '60s garage-pop, twang-rock flourishes abound. Texan Paige McClain Wood and Californian Steven Trezevant Dies describe their sound as "gypsydelic" and I concur. Favorite single of the month! Check out the vid below!
Pale Morning Light The Late Call (Tapete) - Rare that I can hang with an album from start to finish. Sometimes I get about 3 songs in, if I'm lucky. Lucky that I'm not bored by too many malnourished songs. Not so with this third collection of melodic folk-rock musings from Stockholm-based singer-songwriter Mr. Johannes Mayer. Great vibe, great voice, great songs; worth hangin' from start to finish. »
