Stereogum's Xmas gift for you

In an admirable show of Christmas spirit, MP3 blog Stereogum has thoughtfully compiled a list of its top 50 downloaded tracks of the year. Even more thoughtfully, they've zipped all 50 of the files into one conveniently downloadable archive! Among the gems are a radical Diplo deconstruction/remix of Radiohead's "Reckoner," selections from year-end-list favorites such as Hercules and Love Affair, Fleet Foxes and Crystal Stilts, and even a track from Brooklyn-via-Boulder outfit Chairlift. It takes about twenty minutes to download it over the typical broadband connection, but other than that, it's totally free (and legal), so there's not much reason not to grab it. -- Cory Casciato

(P.S. Not sure what the deal is with that cat picture, but it's what Stereogum chose to illustrate their blog post, and who am I to argue? Happy Holidays!)
