Train: Whoa whoa whoa, take it easy Axel!

Axel: Maaaan, if I don’t get some cover songs soon Train, I’m gonna shoot the shit outta this lamp!

Train: Well, nobody wants to see a fine looking lamp get blasted for no reason….why don’t you sit down and crank the speakers, I’ve got a nice mix of old and new for you today.

Axel: Word up Train. I’m probably still going to shoot that lamp though, it’s kinda ugly…

B-B-B-Bonus jam! Here’s a track from Gilbere Forte’s upcoming mixtape 87 Dreams. I’m a sucker for tracks that flip indie samples -  combine that with one of my favorite bands of the past year and it’s a match made in mixtape heaven.
