Other Countries Mixtape

On Tuesday, Eric Steuer of Meanest Man Contest contributed a guest mixtape to When You Awake, an LA-based country music blog. Their reaction to his initial offer was not too far from what I’d think mine would be: “When Eric Steuer of the hip hop/electronic duo Meanest Man Contest approached me about doing a mixtape, I was completely intrigued. Needless to say, we don’t get too many requests from hip hop groups wanting to share their love of country music.” The mixtape is, far less surprisingly, nothing I can imagine they’d ever expect and I might only have thought possible in lieu of evidence like the global fascination with West Virginia’s state song, John Denver’s “Take Me Home Country Roads.” Needless to say, I was disappointed to see that the Toots and the Maytals cover of our song was not included, though the Romanian version that was is pretty neat. You can download Eric’s mixtape and get a significantly more detailed tracklist under this here cowboy hat.
