My Mix for the Month of September is now up to download at rapidshare and mediafire. It's a pretty damn good mix this month with some quality songs. It kicks off with Lanemeyer's opening track to their EP Stories of the Big Screen. Lanemeyer never received the love and praise that they deserved in 1999/2000 but their side projects "Day at the Fair" and "The Gaslight Anthem".
Track 3 contains the song I've Got the Love by Gene the Werewolf (Jon Belin of Punchline) which is an extremely catchy and fun 80's hair-metal sound. The song was shown to me by Jonathan London of Geekscape. Jonathan also played me the new Steel Train album which is where track #8 came from.
The biggest reason I think people should check out this mix is track #12 Clockwork Creep by 10cc. This 70's band has had such a huge influence on Indie rock that it's disappointing they don't get more attention. The bizarre blending of genres in this song is clearly comparable to Steel Train and fun.
