mp3 Mixtape: Friday Mixtape CXVII

on August 20, 2010, 3:15pm

In case you can’t read roman numerals, we’ve been doing the Friday Mixtape for 118 weeks now. However, this edition marks the first time we’ve changed the feature’s formula. Sure, the week’s mix of the best new singles, remixes, and mp3s from up-and-comers remains — in fact, this week is particularly kick ass! But now included is a special section dedicated specifically to the week’s best new covers, which is brought to you specifically by the wonderful Cover Me.

You may or may not know that CoS News Writer Ray Padgett also operates the aforementioned Cover Me. Over the last year, we’ve watch as his blog has grown into the premiere source for all things, well, covers. I thought it’d only be appropriate to ask Ray to come on and share his favorite covers of the week and I’m happy to announce he graciously accepted.

So if you’re looking for another reason to check out our Friday Mixtape on a weekly basis, here it is. Trust me kids, you aren’t going to find a tape this good anywhere else on the web. –Alex Young, Publisher & CEO

P.S. As an added bonus, several members of the CoS Staff selected their favorite festival covers for a special feature on Cover Me. Check it out here.
