Pushbinlou's Best of 2011 Extravaganza!

A nice big fat best of mix for all of you to enjoy. There was a ton of great stuff on the FMA this year and there is no way I could catch all of it in a best of mix so apologies to all the tracks that I slept on.

Ears Wide Open - Mild Maynyrd

I'll admit that the majority of the time I tend to lurk in the electronic corner of the Free Music Archive but every now and then when things are slow I'll see what new things have landed in some of the other genres.  In doing just that I have discovered some really good hip-hop releases that have surfaced here in the last few weeks.  My favorite release of the moment is Dead Herring from Mild Maynyrd (Dan Black).  Dead Herring is Dan's second full length release with an EP and a few Notorious B.I.G. remix records under his belt as well.

All of the tracks are dark instrumental numbers with tons of great rock samples (some very recognizable and some not) and experimentation peppered throughout.  The majority of the album has a dark brooding feeling that is akin to some of DJ Shadow's early work.  There is also a very organic live instrument feel to the tracks as well.  You definitely get the sense that these songs are not simply a cut and paste job that is being done by someone on a laptop.  I cherry picked a few of my favorite tracks from the album but like most of the albums that I pick for these blog posts I recommend that you give the whole thing a listen.  Enjoy!
