Keeping with our unfortunate tradition of mixtape lateness, this was supposed to have been finished and posted earlier this past week to serve as a nice pre-Halloween collection of goth, post-punk and darker tunes.

First: a mea culpa. Yes, the Slicing Up Eyeballs Mixtape Department has fallen down on the job, failing to produce a new entry in the Auto Reverse series since winter wrapped its cruel grip across this land.
