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.)
