I can't remember if I ever downloaded the compilation itself but I own pretty much every major Sonic Youth release so I know all of the songs really well. I always wanted to pick up a copy of the compilation just cause I thought it was hysterical but I never saw it at a Starbucks.
I just looked over the tracklist and it's pretty solid. They were never really a singles band but that's a damn good attempt at a greatest hits compilation.

I am all about the ambient/drone stuff this year. The new Mountains and Eluvium albums are on heavy rotation, and are my favorite two of 2013 so far.

Bjorrito: have you listened to Andrew Thomas? I got into him because he's on all the Kompakt Pop Ambient series albums and his tracks are always the best. I been rockin that shit. I've been listening to a ton of ambient lately as well. Not so much drone tho
This sounds AWESOME! Mothafuckin SIGUR ROS DJ SET?????? Read their description for what they're going to play and tell me it doesn't sound amazing. None of them know how to mix at all, they are just going to play a bunch of weird club tracks. I can't wait.
"this is not going to be wall-to-wall, hair-tossing post-rock. there will be no glacial soundscapes of awesome dimensions. neither warm bubble baths of yoga wind-down muzak. (or any of the other enduring cliches about sigur ros). instead triple nipple represents what sigur ros do when they are off-duty – you know, for fun. some of it may be tough, cool and futuristic, some of it will no doubt be high-aroma fromage. most of the cool stuff comes courtesy of sigrun jonsdottir, the band’s trombone-wielding authority on baltimore club. guitarist kjartan holm, meanwhile, pitches in with some minimal hip-hop, orri with some dubstep and, yes, you’ve guessed it, jonsi brings the extensive cheeseboard. no-one involved lays claim to be able to mix, even remotely. this is how sigur ros get down and unwind in the dressing room and on the tour bus after a show. if you’d like a window on their world, come on in. if you are expecting a mystique enhancing exercise of deep solipsism, look away now."
