BwGN AM Mixtape #56 – The one that's gone electro

This week's Boy with Girl's Name Morning Mixtape is inspired by local bands W0RK and Pregnant, who I saw play recently at the Makeout Room in San Francisco, and by Grimes, who I recently heard blasted at top volume at Rosamunde. The theme of today's mixtape is electro. I've dug through my collection for a diverse mix of songs aided and abetted by samplers, drum machines, synthesizers and other programmable electronic instruments.
