    Holy hell thank you. That was the ONE feature I was hoping they'd have, and didn't. Awesome sauce!

    I like mashups, obviously.

    I threw some tracks up for a short playlist of Canadian artists that as far as I know don't have much exposure outside this country.

    Buck 65 is a gravelly-voiced white-boy folk-rapper from Halifax. "Blood of a Young Wolf" is the top track on my stats because it's so damned addictive. There's nothing complicated about his delivery or the music, but the song has a momentum to it that sets hooks in after a few listens, and bits of the lyrics will get stuck in your head.

    "The Drinking Song" by Moxy Früvous has one of my favourite sing-along choruses of all time:
    And the band played on
    As the helicopters whirred
    Drunk on the lawn in a nuclear dawn
    My senses finally blurred

    Wax Mannequin rocks whimsical and absurd lyrics with a sincerity bands like Ween could never muster. He can sing lines like "Fuck up the night / shoot some diamonds and sparks from your torso" with a straight face, and is all the more awesome for it. You should listen to "Power Blaster" for the meowing if nothing else.

    Telefauna is my friend's Montreal-based electronic indie-pop thing, and "Turbulence" is one of their most eclectic and catchy songs.

    I just picked up Sarah Slean's latest album THE BARONESS (which is not, alas, a concept album set in the GI JOE universe) and "Get Home" is the song that's been stuck in my head all day, with its great "liars and cowards" chorus.

    Bif Naked's catalog is pretty hit and miss, but "Everything" from her first album is a great fun little rock song somewhat reminiscent of The Breeders

    And bringing it back to Halifax, Stan Rogers sings about 18th century nautical mishaps, from his live album. God damn them all!

    I came across this one last week, and it made my day. Absolutely horrendous, but also amazing:

    Here's one I made a few weeks back for another forum (where my screenname is, predictably, Ceraziefish).

    The theme? I guess there's not so much a theme as certain emotions it plays to. Besides that, it's just a general survey of the music I like.

    Here 'tis.

    Does anyone remember that TV series by Adam Curtis on BBC last year, "The Trap"?

    Anyway, it had a great soundtrack (his shows always do) so I made it into a muxtape: The Trap.

    Unfortunately, Muxtape got borked 2 days ago, and a lot of the songs on your muxtapes are gone. Just so's you all know.

    Instead of rebuilding my muxtape, I just built a new one in the same place. Here:
