Like I mentioned yesterday, and what Our Society members & our FACEBOOK friends already had dibs/access/etc to since Saturday, I had a little sumfin special a-brewin’ for ya! And, well, here it is! A wonderful whopping 33 songs (well, 30 plus part of 1 split into 3, carry the four, take the squar root or something), from one hell of a fun year so far, i.e. nuffin but oh-niners (I hope, never know… those ‘oh-eighters’ can be pretty sneaky sometimes)!
Now, listen, this ain’t no “best of 09”, we already did an extremely premature one back in January, so no need for any “dude, where’s fucking Animal Collective or Andrew Bird or *insert band here*?” type comments, m’kay? And you know, I think we’ll hold off on any more “premature best of 09’s” until December when we do our next Most Awesomest Tsururific albums mixtape (we love that mixtape, but need it really was “premature”). No, this is just a humble little mixtape of some mind-boggling ego-destroying elitist-smack-downing oh-niner tracks guaranteed to get your toe a-tappin’, your lips a-flappin’, and your ears a-grinnin’… The end, check, done.
It’s chock full o’ artists we’ve talked about, some we haven’t gotten to discuss yet, somethings you may be quite familiar with, and some you might not! In the end, I believe we created a fun oh-nine listening experience that I’m quite happy to get to share now. It’s got the gamut… some highs, some lows, some fast, some slows, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll wonder where the time went! HOORAY!
So, what do you say? How about we start this week off right and continue this month/year proper style, eh? As…

And why don’t you get connected to the rest of the “tsuru experience” and avoid missing out on all the little “perks”, like getting first dibs or members-only vinyl rips. I promise, it’s nothin’ but good times. My only caveats? Keep your ego at the door and please, don’t just take, participate, okay?
