Thought we’d get the long Labor Day weekend out of the way before dropping the third installment in our series of Auto Reverse mixtapes — two 45-minute sides to help ease back into the work week, and September in general. Below, you can stream or download the two sides stuffed, as usual, with ’80s college-rock goodness.

This month’s tape features the new Robert Smith solo cut, plus some old favorites by The Lucy Show, Marc Almond, Big Audio DynamiteFront 242 and Talking Heads — not to mention some cool covers by the likes of The Bangles, The Flaming Lips and Morrissey.

Check it about below — and enjoy.
