This collection of songs was initially thrown together in honor of rainy summer days. Then I decided that it had absolutely nothing to do with rainy summer days. After a considerable amount of thought, it became clear that these tunes were compiled in honor of a cat. This very special feline character pooped in the litter box known as my life, only to prance away and live with another family. He was known for his rebellious behavior and no-nonsense attitude, along with his generally fluffy exterior. Yup, I’ll miss you Schroeder… perhaps you’ll listen to this while terrorizing your new family. On your little kitty headphones! Is there anything cuter than that image? Methinks not.

reptar: its just cat and mouse.

Reptar - Houseboat Babies
Reptar - Cannabis Canyon

Since I seem to be going through a personal pop renaissance, lets revisit an ITMS favorite: Reptar! These Athens popfiends have had their star slowly rise over the course of this year. These latest two jams seem poised to throw them over the top, trebuchet style. These mp3s are pretty lo-fi because I want you to go buy them on iTunes. Yeah, click that. Go do it. I’ll wait.
