Here we go, the first installment of an irregular series in which I plan on highlighting some of my favorite voices online (and beyond). We’re kicking off with Raven Sings The Blues. Based in NYC, since 2006, Raven has been a go-to source dealing in garage, psych, lo-fi and other related curiosities—both new and old. I asked RavenAndy to curate the following mixtape summing up RSTB’s aesthetic. At 20+ tracks, it does just that. Andy is my guest this Friday during the second hour of my SIRIUS XMU show. Grab this mix and be sure to bookmark his site.

This is a great idea! 😀 Thanks! This and RSTB are two of my fav blogs!
lol what’s up with the artwork?
Very nice, thanks…this will help with what has been a lazy Chicago winter
Artwork: Isn’t that Adam and the Ants circa Kings of the Wild Frontier?
when are we gonna get a winter mix from mondo boys?!
@chad – soon (it’s already done).
The costumes remind me of Lord Mortality. He’s hilarious!
I think those are pictures of boy scouts. They’re all wearing Order of the Arrow sashes, a sort of secret society within scouts.
what a fantastic mix! thanks so much to AD & Raven for kicking ass…please keep’em coming.
Really digging this comp, thanks
So many of the links from mix tapes have been disabled. Is it still possible to get any of these? Im a good 3 years late…
