Mix Tape #27 - Suddenly, Germans...

This week I listened to:

- Sad songs.

- Loud songs.

- German songs. (Probably occasioned by this guy's excellent postings.)

- The new Future of the Left about a billion times because it shreds. The only song I don't like is the first single, and it seems like a weird choice for a first single because it sounds nothing like anything else on the album. All the other songs are fairly skull crushing.

So. Put it all together and you get this mix.

Is it me, or does Dorthe look kind of psychotic?
