In other news related to IHTOV, it is evident that not much posting goes on around here. We’re trying to change that. That’s right, “we.” In the near future (which, for this site, is probably a month or so), IHTOV will be welcoming a new voice to the sporadic updates on the blog, which will (maybe) increase the amount of updating. Once every thing is settled, we plan on updating 3 times a week, but I wouldn’t hold your breath. This thing is definitely a spare time hobby.

In the mean time, take a look at the mix and give some of those songs a chance. The grand majority of that mix is new music (with the exception of Maritime and Broken Social Scene– who is due for a new record this year).

I’d link stuff/embed YouTube videos/etc., but I am lazy and you know how to Google. However, if I had to pick a single song on the whole thing, though, I’d say I must highly recommend Titus Andronicus. Their new album, The Monitor, is due out March 9th from XL. It is decidedly kick ass.

Finally, this mix contains two of the music world’s recently dearly departed: Jay Reatard and Vic Chesnutt. RIP to both of them. Let’s hope 2010 is a year where we get lots of exciting music (Pavement reunion tour! LCD Soundsystem’s new album!) and not one like 2009 where we lose a giant bunch of talent (Michael Jackson, Chris “Spacewolf” Feinstein, Teddy Pendergrass just to name a select few).
