Our big homey, the inimitable TITTSWORTH dropped his latest mix earlier this month, an exclusive for the Plant Music fam. It features his new single “Here He Comes” with Nina Sky & Pitbull, available now on Beatport. Like all things T’worth, it’s worth spreading yet further so we’re posting it up here for your glorious iPod convenience. Holler at your boy at Tittsworth.com Tittsworth – Diversify Yo Bonds mix (mp3)

Casper Bangs is set to release a shoegaze, C86-inflected ep December 1st. Here’s a preview. You can already DL the ep, written, produced, performed + recorded by Rob Pierangeli, on Band Camp, and name your own price. Rob is carrying the torch for indiepop in DC these days and this ep makes me smile, like a new Slumberland single in 1995. Keep the faith, Rob! Casper Bangs – Kathryn (mp3)
