Under the Radar loves mixtapes. There’s no denying that. But Caribou REALLY loves mixtapes. In honor of the last few years of his life, and the positive reaction to his newest album Our Love, Caribou frontman Daniel Snaith assembled no less than 1000 songs into an epic playlist for his fans. Read his letter to his fans and listen to the mix below.

The last few years of my life have been incredible, thanks in large part to all of you — so I’ve been thinking of how to say thank you.

As you can imagine, music has been a central love of my life since I was a teenager and over the years I’ve been introduced to a lot that has stayed with me. I’ve collected the majority of that music here — and I thought sharing it with you seemed like one way I could say thanks.

I’m sure some things are under-represented or over-represented, but roughly speaking this is a musical history of my life. Of course a lot of this music has come to me through my friends — thank you to Koushik, Kieran, Jeremy, Gary, Brandon, Jason, Sam, Ketan, Ryan, Toby and many others … Also, please share music with me that you think I would like but is not included here, in the hope this becomes a dialogue rather than a monologue.

I suggest you listen to this on shuffle as I made no attempt to sequence these tracks — I just entered them as I browsed along the shelves in my record collection. If you see dead links or duplicate songs please tweet me — @caribouband.

I hope you find something to enjoy here.
