What an elegant introduction to your mix. And besides your usual mix of names new to me, I am especially happy to see the closer on side 2.

With names such as "Suburban Kids with Biblical Names" and "Dykehouse", how can one go wrong? ;)

Dreamlike, Alex - especially liked tracks 2/3 on side 1 and the Japanese Lullaby on side 2, though the whole thing was fabulous.
