Below, you can stream or download the two sides, crammed, as always, with some ’80s college-rock favorites and a few new tracks.

This month’s tape includes new music from Tommy Stinson, the Pet Shop Boys’ Chris Lowe, David Newton of The Mighty Lemon Drops, and Billy Bragg, plus old favorites from the likes of the Hoodoo Gurus, Front 242, The La’s, The Housemartins, Guadalcanal Diary and many more.
