Hello, partygoers! Come on into the Listening party rumpus room for another fun trawl through some mixtapes.

This week, we tackle side two of Bob Evans’ mix and hear some familiar Cancon, some angular rock, protest punk, emotionless new wave, dramatic power pop, and a couple of perfect little jewels of a song.

Come on into the Listening Party rumpus room. We have disinfected the cool plastic dome on our retro phonograph player so you can throw on a few records too if you’d like.
