Christmas came early for fans of The Weeknd with yet another free "mixtape", or as I like to call them..."albums". One wonders when our favorite (post?) R&B/Hip-Hop act of this year will get an official release, yet we're guessing they're consciously stalling and choosing their own release schedule and strategies. Not to mention that free or not free, signed or unsigned The Weeknd's music is special. We should note that track 7 is produced by another favorite of ours: Clams Casino (whose instrumental mixtape is a 2011 highlight and you should also download for free here, if you haven't already) Download the new The Weeknd mixtape "Echoes of Silence" here or through their site. In case you were wondering, we're still loving the crew.
