The Current Squirrel Playlist

"There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind."
-Duke Ellington

2009 was a sad year for music. A year which saw the ascendance of disgusting new-age hippies in the form of crap like Animal Collective, and we saw the end of the mighty Touch & Go Records, but fear not kids, we’re going to start the new year right, for I give you:
