Free Halloween Mix 2011. While we’re not great ones for themed mixes on MM, Halloween is one of the exceptions we like to make. Here is a perfect mix for whatever ghoulish event you’ve got lined up today! Fifteen corking tunes, from the skewed new wave pop of XTC and off-kilter indie of the Mountain Goats to the trashy surf rock of The Cramps and from the folk-stomp of the Men They Couldn’t Hang and the gothic drive of Ghost Dance to the pounding blues rock of the Scissormen and 22-20s. Enjoy.

One Thousand Posts - A Celebratory Mix. We moved MM to WordPress in April 2010, after being one of the many blogs to get screwed by Google Blogspot. We noticed that this is our one thousandth post since that time and so we have marked the occasion (for such that it is for us) with an appropriately themed mix for your enjoyment.

So, from the classic sound of Tenpole Tudor’s new wave power-pop via The Men They Couldn’t Hang’s protest cow punk to the folk of Joe Pug and the Floydian prog-rock of The Silver Machines, there should be something for everyone to get their teeth, and ears, into.

Dig in! Here’s to the next thousand.

We’re very impressed with Shuffler FM, the new music blog internet radio that plays randomly selected tracks from different blogs based on your preferences of genre. Then if you like the song you can download it from the blog before moving on to the next track and the next blog.

It is brilliantly simple, no registrations or log-ins, and is a great way to discover new music (and new blogs) you might like.

Check out Shuffler FM and get started by clicking here or using the link on the right.

And while we’re at it, it seemed like a good opportunity for us to try and get two or three old classics (that have long been unfairly forgotten) onto the Shuffler playlist too.

So try the classic cow-punk of The Men They Couldn’t Hang and their storming protest song Ironmasters, the 100% infectious folk and fiddle of The Cropdusters Yesterday’s Cakes, and the bitter anti-war lament The Easter Parade by The Faith Brothers. All wonderful additions to any iTunes library.
