Tuesday Mixtape (Side 2) | 70 Songs That Are Better Than A Boxful Of Scorpions

288

Yesterday, you may recall, I wrote about getting an unsolicited bag of coffee beans in the mail. Was I surprised? Sure. But not half as surprised as Joywave’s drummer Paul Brenner, who — according to a story making the rounds today — ordered some clothes online and got a box of live scorpions. And not the power ballad-spewing, Rock You Like A Hurricay-eeene! kind; the stinging, scary and totally dangerous kind. Now, it’s not a competition — but if it were, he would totally win. In his honour, I have flagged all of today’s sharpest cuts with a 🦂. Enjoy these 60 new singles, videos, cover tunes and remixes, including plenty of keepers you won’t find anywhere else — but none that will necessitate a trip to the ER (hopefully):
