Folks... it's a new month, meaning it's time for another installment of the Crash Avenue Comp Series. As usual, we compile a collection of songs we've discovered from lesser known and DIY artists, as well as stuff from our friends and favorite established artists, and package it all together in a digital compilation free to download. And of course… the crowd pleaser, the compilation artwork that lampoons some of our favorite blogs and media outlets.
In celebration of Justin Beiber's birthday today (happy 17th, bro! swag!), it was only fitting that we present to you Ryan Schreiber: My World 9.2. In our limited discussions with the founder of Pitchfork, he always seemed like a pretty deece dude with a good sense of humor… one who wouldn't mind getting his hair Beiberized because his last name rhymed. So… we did just that.
