Friday Mixtape #45 - Use Somebody - mp3

This week's mixtape is another themed mix... it's made up entirely of cover songs... and covers done in my favorite way... completely different to the original! It's pretty mellow, which might be a good musical choice for my fellow Irish dwellers as we need to calm ourselves after the Paddys Week festivities.

Also included of course is a Big Star cover in honor of the late Alex Chilton who passed away this week. Enjoy.

  1. This is the guy you got on the Dave Fanning show a few years ago, still a lame claim to fame for me. The new blog looks pretty! I just checked Culturesluts for the first time in a long time - excited to find new content from you, looking forward to listening.
