MARCH ’15 MIX.

2015-03-28 10.06.51

I’ve been all deep inside this mixtape over the past couple of days. It’s been pouring and super windy here in Sydneytown, so I’ve been stuck inside, writing, selecting tracks, mixing etc. It’s longer than some of the earlier ones, with 19 tracks. All pretty solid too, although you’d expect that from a maamf mixtape.

From Oh Mercy to Sarah Mary Chadwick, there are odes to self desire and self defeat. From friendships to Abelard, there’s stark harshness and sugar coated nostalgic glitz. A tape full of contrast, with each playing off the other.

A tape worth it, for the showcase of broad tastes and ideas and sonicness alone.

JUNE ’14 MIX.

Oh haiiiii! How you doin? June was a bit of a rad old month full of heaps of great great music full of heaps of different different styles and things like that.

And without wanting to highlight one track over another, and also because writing something about every track would take me just a little too much time, and that be time that I don’t have, although by taking forever to finish off this sentence then that may not seem the case, i’ll write about just a few.

It’s hard to escape the impact the new LUCIANBLOMKAMP track will have and has already had on how electronic music is not only made but also where it can go.

Ex-pats Shorts (the project of Mikael Caterer from Love Connection as well as Scott and Charlene’s Wedding) continues that Aussie jangle tradition but instead combines it with a ‘clean’ production.

And then, of course, the new Dick Diver. It’s hard to write about ‘New Name Blues’ without simply repeating what every other interpretation has stated. What I will say though is that here’s a band that continually get better and evolve and aren’t afraid to enter into intelligent political discussion whilst still maintaining this accessible and lovely feel.
