I realized a good portion of the songs that really caught my ear this year were brought to my attention via Fluxblog, the first and longest-running mp3 blog. So here's a mix in tribute to the indefatigable Matthew Perpetua. Of the many many tracks posted over the course of 2011, these are my 18 favoritest, including James Blake, The Dø and The Kills. About 75 minutes of music. Thanks Matthew.

Is this playlist safe for work?
