There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.

It’s cool that Magnet magazine still exists. And it’s especially cool that the D.C. band the Caribbean still exists. Their existences converged today: The band made a “mixtape” for the magazine. We encourage you to click on that link and read the things that the Caribbean has to say about the songs. But to make the quote-unquote mixtape a little less conceptual for you, here are the songs (which are actually all videos) presented without commentary:

Carole King | Dire Straits | The Who | The Go Betweens | Tycho | Quarteto Novo | Thelonious Monk | Hamlet Gonashvili | Palast der Republik | Robert Wyatt

(The Caribbean, by the way, has a new album, Discontinued Perfume, coming out on Feb. 22.)
