Welcome to another edition of our Saturday morning mixtape.  This week, we have a ton of new singles from Unleash the Archers, Primitive Man, Black Magnet, and Full of Hell & Health.  Plus, Chris gives us a triple dose of Fear, we throw a bunch of Rebel Wizard at you (because seriously Magickal Mystical Indifference absolutely rules), and much more.  As always, listen below, and thanks for checking this out.

I tend to intellectualize things when I don’t understand them, which is why I can’t let myself enjoy music or video games sometimes. Looking for the bigger thing doesn’t always lead to answers and, sometimes, you just have to have fun.

Considering how there has been many events this past month that have occurred, I think I need to bring some comfort and cheese into this column just to get away from all the rage and despair we are seeing.
