Don't Tell a Soul, Vol. 46 (DYNO2)

Good evening.

What you're about to witness -- the latest installment of "Don't Tell a Soul" -- is a mix tape of the "awesomest" caliber.

I only wish I were kidding.

ANYWAY, to encourage the consumption of music that doesn't
suck, I have provided -- wherever available -- links to free, artist-sanctioned MP3s of the songs.

Most of today's tracks were selected for a certain undefinable quality -- they're all kind of halfway between pure, unadulterated escapism and plain ol' surrealism -- so, instead of trying to define them, I thought I'd ... totally pull a fast on all y'all and not write a gosh-darn thing about any one of these wonderful tracks.

I beg you to just trust me and take a listen to these marvelous tunes. (Plus, I really need to catch up on the mix tapes piling up on my desk ... it's turning into freakin' CD Mountain or something!)

Don't hate, and certainly don't have too much fun!
