A couple of things to check out if you’re so inclined – first of all, I made a new mix of ten songs from 2011 bands that you can listen to at the 8TRACKS site or on an iPhone. Click here to listen to “BEACH BLANKET BONGOUT”, featuring new songs from Puberty, Grass Widow, the Art Museums, Charles Albright, Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, Soft Science and more. They’re songs we’re partial to over here at HJ HQ, and in case you’re wondering, the title of the mix is in respectful homage to the mediocre hardcore punk song of the same name from 1981 by JODY FOSTER’S ARMY.

Also – we need more friends on Twitter. Seriously, the HedonistJive twitter feed only has 26 followers. Can I count on four of you to get it up past 30 by week’s end? I actually happen to use Twitter fairly frequently – I’ve become a believer in its utility as a place to share and view links from people I trust & follow – and hope that you will count on HJ for same. Anyone who’s following jayhinman, our alter ego, is bound to be severely & bitterly disappointed, as I’ve transitioned that into a work-related feed that’ll add years to your life.
