Missed Hits 2004

Each year (this year and last year anyway), I make a comp CD of the best stuff I heard that year that most people probably didn't. I pass it around to a few friends and that sort of thing. Anyway, here's the 2004 list. Maybe I'll post the 2003 list another time. By the way, this is stuff I heard for the first time in 2004, not stuff that came out in 2004. Some of it's a good bit older.
