Here it is. Smack bang, ready for your shortened week (if you were lucky enough to just have a long weekend that is. Soz if not).
As always, the tape runs all over your genres, from some of that lovely jangle pop to some grungy stuff to whatever on earth Cut Copy are doing nowadays. And that new edit from The Avalanches makes me hard.

For me it’s the fact that The Avalanches are playing. I think i’m definitely going to have to fly up to Syds town for this one. Excitement is a bit of an understatement.
It seems every site under the sun are saying that they got there first. I got my info off The Vine, but it seems as though awesome bros Pedestrian as well as Mess + Noise and a few others have got the ‘exclusive’ too. I think the real winner here is the inner detective in all of us.
