So whether you’re nursing an election hangover (get ready for another 3 years at least), or you’re one of those quiet ones who are slightly chuffed at last night’s results (you know what will happen right?), it’s my hope that this mixtape, although a little late, will help make your Sunday night. It’s a biggun, and features some rather stellar acts. Not many individual tracks for download this month I know (keeping it kool with the artists dudes), but hey, the mixtape itself is solid – maybe give that a download instead.

For a band that’s only been going for a short while, Manor have got a bit of a killer sound downpat. From Adelaide, the duo remind me a fair bit of Beach House (which is a very very good thing).
For me, I think it’s the swoon factor. Although the instrumentation in their first single Rhodesia is kinda simple, there is still this feeling that washes over you, especially at the 1:30 mark.
This is kinda blissful. You can stream the track just below and if you dig, make sure you grab it on iTunes. The guys are currently working on a debut LP due out some time 2012.
