Music geeks, rejoice. The dude behind the epic mix of post-punk released in 1981 (nearly 350 artists spread across nearly 400 tracks) has started an mp3 blog, Musicophilia
, and it looks like he'll be posting all of eight or nine individual mixes that make up the set.
Soundslike, as he calls himself, used to live here, and a handful of us were lucky enough to get hard copies before he moved away to Portland. Perhaps only second to the first volume of Stax singles, I can't think of anything I've listened to more in the last three or four years.
In addition to the 1981 mixes, there's several from a post-punk series that gathers songs two minutes or less and several from a series, "Le Tour du Monde," that seems focussed on encompassing the broadest range of sounds possible.
