I have been checking my mailbox OCD style waiting for this to arrive. It is driving me crazy! I haven't heard it yet. What do you think?
I wasn't as instantly blown away as I expected to be, but it's really good. The first listen just kinda sounded like another generic rap album to me. But, with a couple more listens, the brilliance in it started to become more obvious.
That new Kool A.D, on the other hand, that one got me right away. My opinion is probably biased though, on account of me already being a huge fan of Das Racist not so much Freddie Gibbs.

Woooo! Woke up to a CD in the mail! Pics of the cover art and track list coming soon. And Professor, I love both covers, I can see how it would've been hard to pick one.
Glad you like them. I was happy with how they turned out, especially considering that my original idea fell through. As far as the mix itself, I don't expect you to like all of the songs on it, but I think the first and last tracks alone are worth the cost of admission by anyone's standards.

They've come too far to turn back now. If sales of the 3 day passes are too sluggish, I could see them possibly opening up one day passes again and/or returning to the single 4 day weekend model next year. Keep in mind that Snacks still sees this as one big festival taking place on two weekends; I don't see any realistic reason why he would decide to cancel half of the festival.

Apparently, if you download Live 95.5's mobile app, they will be giving away Sasquatch passes. I'm not sure how it works, but I assume it will be easier than subjecting yourself to actually listening to their radio station.
Which song did it? Which one can't you stop listening to now?
No one song in particular. Oddly enough, it was Trouble Will Find Me, an album that did absolutely nothing for me first couple listens that me pushed over the edge into full blown liking. I was listening to it last night and I heard/felt an intensity in the songs that I hadn't felt before. I'm actually looking forward to seeing them now.
