There's something about a sampler that can't be replaced. Perhaps it's the notion that music-savvy pros spent a few good hours compiling the perfect compilation, or the fact that - I don't know - they're FREE?!
So yeah, out of 10,000 of these puppies we've all received one at Merge. Artists in the mix include Sugar, Red Kross, The Magnetic Feilds, M. Ward and more. I'll post the track list on an 8Track soon!
