  1. @hersschel – yeah, donwload the file not the ads or whatever else on the sendspace page. Easy.

  2. Beautiful mix, Paul. Thank you for it. I was hoping you could shed some light on the version of “Hog of the Forsaken” by Michael Hurley you included, as I have never heard it before. I’ve heard the faster, full band version from Deadwood and the more sparse performance from the Wolfways album, but never this one. It is much slower and, dare I say, more beautiful than the two versions I know.

  3. @chad This version is from Hurley’s 2009 record, Ida Con Snock. I strongly recommend that record for Wildegeeses and I Stole The Right To Live.

  4. A good mixtape:makes you wonder where you can find more from the artist, asking why isn’t this certain artist more famous or well known?, schools you, entertains, is compiled in such a way that the songs next to one another and in such an order are better than by themselves,is a work of art, has a good lead and end, leaves you satisfied – since Mondo Boys you guys never disapoint and are THE SHIT – keep ’em coming please and thanks.

  5. please re-up, I’ve been listening to volume 7 on repeat at work and on my drive to and from philly-NYC so i’m going backwards through all the mixes
