New mix from Fred Thomas offers new music from Stef Chura, Fred himself, and possible hangover cure

Supreme bummer vibes are in store for those who listen to the mix that Fred Thomas posted yesterday. Anything that starts with one of Plush's best songs has to be worth checking out.

The former Michigan resident, who currently resides in the nether regions of Canada, will take a break from saving stranded polar bears to perform at UFO Factory this Friday with Bonny Doon, before taking off on a short tour with them.

We asked him about the mix yesterday and he said "The mix today was just totally for fun! Felt like making an Autumnal mix for this first day of November, as many friends are probably in comedown mode from this year's Halloween falling on a weekend. Stef had sent me a new song that she demoed with David from TOPS while they were in Detroit, and I felt it fit the mix, as did an ambient track from a tape I'm working on with my friend Dash from Chicago in our project Sister Lake... Other than that it was low key bummers, dirgey reggae versions and whatever drifty shit was passing through my mind. Hoped people would listen to it and just zone out, be hungover, study, stare out the window, etc."

Thanks, Fred!
