Never Ending Internet Mix Tape

a musical exquisite corpse. look it up.

Vol 04 / Trk 12 / Turbulence (BIS Remix) / Arab Strap

I’m writing from a hotel room in Phoenix, without my usual massive hard drive to pull something from. So in between writing a presentation and feeling my flesh burn in 105-degree weather, I dug up an Arab Strap song from a few years ago, when the band broke up. They had a neat trick they pulled out every so often—creating dance music that was almost terrifyingly bleak and sad, but you didn’t really notice because it had a fast beat (and a thick Scottish accent). That doesn’t mean it sounds fun, but it does sound thrilling, and best of all, it has lyrics that tell a story in complete sentences, which we haven’t seen in a long while.

About the NEIMT

Every couple of days, one of the NEIMT authors will post a song that is in some way a reaction to the previous song posted by another author. Every 15 songs will be packaged up with cover art and presented for download as a complete mix. The only rule is that no artist can appear more than once in the same volume.

Previous Incarnations of the NEIMT

You can still see the old mixes at neimtarchive.blogspot.com. Some of the old download links might still even work.

About Copyright

We freely admit that this blog is probably a violation of artistic copyright law. We put together these mix "tapes" as way to share great music in a way that encourages artist support and utilizes grassroots promotion by purposefully violating those copyrights. We would like to imagine that no artist in their right mind would oppose such altruistic intentions despite its bureaucratic insubordinance.
