Here’s a good one for you. Sample Food 2: a mix so patently conceived by and for music lovers. Sample Food 2: Completely devoid of filler. Sample Food 2: an endless loop of classic samples from Otis Redding to Weldon Irvine. And yes, we’ve heard these songs before but never in a format this seamless, this arrestingly beautiful. So when you tire of those devilishly annoying Christmas tunes and start to consider suicide–as I’ve done the last three weeks–take a big helping of Sample Food 2 and watch sanity return to your walnut. Peace.
