    Hi. I also recently learned of this through Coverville and would like to enjoy, but the links are not working.

    Yes please reupload or share the file with me and I can upload it to a shareable network link and post that link here.

      Any chance this could be re-uploaded? Heard a track from this recently and would love to download the full mixtape. Thanks!

    Wow! Awesome covers, thanks! I especially like Glasvegas’ cover of Come As You Are. They’re so talented, and I can’t wait for their new album Euphoric Heartbreak coming out on the 17th 🙂

    Absolutely stellar mix.

    If you haven’t heard them before, i also recommend:

    –Willie Nelson, Smells Like Teen Spirit (really just him messing up the lyrics and repeating the chorus, but still)

    –Animal Collective, Polly (creepy as hell)

    –Scala & Kolacny Brothers, Lithium and Smells Like Teen Spirit (the Spree version is money, but this is that choral group that did Creep for the Facebook movie)

    –Horse Feathers, Drain You (nice and mellow)

    –Sinead O’Connor, All Apologies (let’s be honest, the woman has a way with a cover)

    –Laura Love, Come As You Are (a bit countrified)

    –Z-Trip Remix of Lounge Act (Z-Trip plays down the instruments and keys in on Kurt’s vocals; pretty damn nice)
