So not surprisingly, everyone loves that Esau Mwamwaya + Radioclit are The Very Best mixtape we keep talking about (which predictably ended up in our top 20 records of '08). And yes, I know they're giving it away for free, but wouldn't you like to have a physical 7", with packaging that was "produced with wind power, made with 100% Post Consumer paper, water based printing and packaged in corn plastic"...

esau mwamwaya + radioclit :: the very best mixtape

This was a nice surprise to wake up to this morning (thanks Scott). Officially scheduled to be released on November 1, here's the debut (free) mixtape from Esau Mwamwaya + Radioclit, aka the Very Best, complete with absolutely fitting The Lion King-esque artwork. We've already heard a number of these tracks, but as a whole, this mixtape is one of the most sincere and uplifting things I've heard in a long time. One track we haven't heard yet is "Dinosaur on the Ark," featuring vocals from Ben Brewer, aka M.I.A.'s baby daddy. Highly recommended, obviously:
