McQ's Best Of 2005 - Recommended Mixes Volume 2 - 80s-Styled Rock

2005 delivered some of the best 80s-styled rock of the entire decade, most notably LCD Soundsystem's fantastic dance-rock debut (which in addition to a full disc of new material, included a second compilation disc of all their early singles), Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's self-titled and self-released indie smash, and Wolf Parade's debut quirkfest Apologies To The Queen Mary, which introduced us to the hardest working man in late Aughts indie rock, Spencer Krug.
