Oh, hey… it’s February. Time for a new mixtape. So here’s the latest in our monthly series of Auto Reverse mixtapes — two 45-minute sides to help you settle into a month with 29 days (yes, it’s leap year). Below, you can stream or download the two sides, brimming, as always, with some ’80s college-rock goodness and a few new tracks.
This month’s tape includes new music from The Wedding Present and Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo, plus new remixes of The Cure and Depeche Mode and plenty of old faves by the likes of The Chills, Kraftwerk, Squeeze, Oingo Boingo, The Go-Betweens and many, many more.
Check it about below — and enjoy.

Ah, that’s because it’s a hidden track…
Hey guys, I’m not seeing a Soundcloud link this time, just an empty gray box. =(
What browser are you using? I’ve tested it in Firefox, Chrome and Explorer, and it always come up for me…
But you can also access it here: http://soundcloud.com/slicingupeyeballs/sets/auto-reverse-slicing-up-4/
I’m on Chrome for Mac, maybe it’s one of my addons. Any rate, as long as nobody else is having a problem it’s all good =) Thanks for the link! I look forward to this every month.
Nice to see the Chills make it on here!
Such a great website. Great mix. Thanks.
Excellent mix-tape for February. Especially Squeeze, Oingo Boingo and Love and Rockets. Keep up the great mixes.
Great mixes! I personally love this one – The Cure, “Apart” (Renholdër Remix). Thanks for sharing.
Thank You! I love New Order and Fujiya and Miyagi are one of my fav bands of recent years. Didn’t know they’d covered Your Slient Face….great.
