As for the music, it's pretty much the standard mix of knowns and unknowns, with an ooey gooey centre of slightly stranger than usual tracks. Notable selections include a funky collaboration from St. Vincent and David Byrne, the psychelectronic and largely incoherent stylings of Alt-J, 16-bit hip hop, folk/country hip hop, and gay pride hip hop. Special kudos this month go to B. Dolan for an album-quality mixtape featuring not only the aforementioned gay pride song, but also thoughtful tracks about racism and the dishonesty of military recruitment. And it's catchy to boot!
