♫♪  Chocolate Grinder Mix 03 - “Pumpkin Gets a Snakebite”

This is our first 2009 mix, and I've already managed to contaminate the temporal purity by including a 2008 song, Ryland Bouchard's "Woke Up Alone" (which didn't quite fit my first mix). The rest of the tracks, however, are so fresh and new that most of them have yet to be officially released, including a track from Dan Deacon's much-anticipated new album, Bromst, another from the hyped-up WAVVVES LP (which has been bumped to March), and one from Tim Hecker's An Imaginary Country, which sounds significantly better in its original context. Anyway, I'm sorta in love with my transition from the Psychic Ills track to the Dent May track, so take note and prepare yourself to be in awe of my mixing skills.
