Q1 Mixtape: In Which Damn Bitch My Feet Hurt

Weird couple of months for music ... major releases ranged from surprising (Bright Eyes) to abysmal (STROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOKES, ugh), with some weird outsiders pushing forward (looking directly at your weird ass, Nicolas Jaar). All in all, it makes for probably the most disjointed mixtape since this project started - still, it's also likely the highest-quality. Go and buy some albums, kids, amazing things are happening.

And, if you haven't yet, recognize that Odd Future is taking over the fucking planet:
Free Earl, indeed.
