Highly Rec’d – November ’10 Mixtape

written by: on November 8, 2010

For some, the process of the hunt is a pleasure, for others a chore. Highly Rec’d turns that idea on its head with their monthly mixtape series, which has long been a staple in our musical diet, since launching in 2007. Their mantra ties in with our goal as purveyors of fresh and exciting music, “Because good music is a right, not a privilege.”

The mixtape giants had some nice words about us for their latest edition:

New Friends: Pop’stache!

No, I did not just make that fantastic word up, Pop ‘stache is a new music site that is launching this November, and the people behind it have been nice enough/smart enough to ask me to take a small part in their crazy cool site’s launch, so I hope everyone takes the time to hop on the ‘stache and enjoy the ride!
