1. DJ Ayres and The Rub team are always reliable for some good stuff.  Now, they’ve got the history of hip hop, volume one, a mixtape, here.

2.  Cover Me has Eels covers!

3.  Fong’s got a wickedly eclectic post that includes Michele Shocked (voice like a f-ing angel) doing Neil Young.

4.  LHB has his “blogs to read in 2010.”  I’m not on the list, but I’m not surprised.  I never get juice from other bloggers.  They all hate me.  Dunno why.  Don’t think I’m sophisticated enuf.  Anyway, I don’t hate the game, or the playa.

5.  And now, some samplers and mixes: The 20-song Glastonbury sampler; Clash the Discko’s latest dance mix; Vans Warped Tour sampler.

6.  And last but not least, one of my favorite indie pop bands is returning!  The Features!  Details and free song here.
