I'm going on the yearly trip to Elise's uncle's cabin in Maine. I'll be gone for a while so, as usual, I made a mix for myself to listen to on my trip and for you to listen to while I'm partying. The "Surprise!" isn't, "Surprise! I'm going on vacation." It's more like, "Surprise Elise! I made a mix for you." She left for the cabin before me to hang with her parents, so I made this for her. And for you. Get it?

It's got some great fucking stuff on it and is very appropriate for a few days in a secluded, forested, cabin by the lake. Some banjos, Tuvan throat singing, an accapella Who cover, outsider weirdness, chill acoustic tunes, and good old fashioned garage rock. Everything should be right up your alley.
