Hype album, Vol. 1

It’s been a while since I discovered The Hype Machine. I’ve been enjoying their monthly “radio show” podcast a lot. The site itself is really useful, especially if you know what you’re looking for. It can be a little unwieldy to browse at times, but it’s a decent way to find some new tunes. Plus, it’s really great for grabbing promotional copies of the music you’re listening to. I also started listening to Pandora again, which is another really great way to find some new tunes. So I decided to make a random mix CD with some of the new music I’ve found on The Hype Machine, Pandora, and elsewhere on the interwebs. I grabbed all these songs as free promotional downloads from The Hype Machine.

  1. M.I.A. – Paper Planes
  2. Phoenix – 1901
  3. Little Boots – Remedy
  4. Beck – Sunday Morning
  5. Chris Brown – Forever
  6. Michael Franti – Say Hey (I Love You)
