yo la hannukah mix by yoni wolf of why?

WHY? is a weird, weird band, and that’s why I dig them. I first encountered them when a coworker at the public library I worked at in college gave me Elephant Eyelash and was surprised to find it was nothing like I’d ever heard. M|H has been featuring WHY?’s work over the years and when we saw they were coming to town to play a free show at the Sett in Union South with Astronautalis and Dream Tiger we jumped on the chance to have them make us a mixtape, and WHY? founder Yoni Wolf passed along his Yo La Hannukah mix to us. Be sure to check out WHY?’s website for more tour dates, videos, and Yoni’s blog.

berlin rain – a mix from zulu pearls

Zulu Pearls’s debut, No Heroes No Honeymoons, was instantly one of my favorite records of the year. After listening to it obsessively for a week, I knew I had to ask ZP’s songwriter Zach Van Hoozer to make M|H a mixtape. Chilled out and wistful, it’s an excellent listen as autumn days fade to gray.

From Zach:
Just got back to Berlin, where it’s dark at 4 PM and raining, this quick mix sums up my vibe at the moment…best save it for a rainy day.
