So, for starters I should say that The Faint is just coming back from a hiatus. I was totally burnt out on song-based music and was quite happy to indulge in the new underground electronic styles that were emerging. I listened to and DJ'd electronic/instrumental stuff almost exclusively for years…until now. Something changed. A switch has been flipped. I'm super psyched on song-based music again.

This mix is a song-heavy hour of current favs, early influences, bands we're excited to be touring with (Icky Blossoms, Trust), and even one from my wife's new band (Harouki Zombi)…
