We hope you enjoy the mix, but if you don't, that's fine, because we'll enjoy it enough for all of you.
Hey, did you know that noted Canadian turntablist Kid Koala is giving away his new album, The Slew? It's true!
I've got it downloaded, haven't listened yet, but the guy's a legend and I've liked most everything he's done, so it's worth checking out. Dude scratched a muted trumpet jazz solo once, so come on.

On the linked page, you'll find a version of George Michael's "Faith" that starts like a camp-fire song, then starts including an Appalachian banjo sound and hand claps... it's like going to a sincere Bible Camp where the counselor doesn't know anything about George Michael, but sure does think the tune is catchy.
The Signal: EP056 - Reminding those machines they work for us, damn it. Hey, folks, welcome back. We've got a brand new mix waiting for you full of everything you like about The Signal, as well as the requisite amount of stuff you don't like, just to toughen you up. Help you grow hair on your chest. Quit crying-- if the kids see you crying, they'll tear you apart. Little animals.
The file is available for an unspecified limited time. If you're curious about the tracks in the mix, I've put the track list in the id3 tags. If you're new around here, I do that so I don't have a list of tracks on my site sitting around for Google to find. These are for us. To heck with strangers using search engines. Who needs 'em.
