Continuing our monthly mixtape tradition, we put our July mix together with summer pool parties in mind.
We start off with more jangley, raw, glitchy numbers from the likes of Los Angeles’ Cayucas (who we caught at KCRW a couple weeks ago), Richmond, VA’s…uniquely named Manatree, and masters of the electro-bizarre, Born Gold, who we caught with the life-afirming Braids last week.
Then we move on to new stuff from our Brooklyn pal Oberhofer before hitting up to local baroque-rock favorites, Moon Honey, and then pleasingly poppy numbers from Cleveland’s The Lighthouse and the Whaler and newcomers from the Minneapolis area, Bad Bad Hats (“Psychic Reader”).
Finishing things off, we go into straight party mode with new songs from Little Boots, Jamie XX, and Major Lazer. If you like that last one, check out the full stream of the most recent release from Diplo and company, Peace is the Mission. Great for the party AND the after party.
Not sure about after the after party. I’m usually in bed by then.
Enjoy! And stop burning down people’s fucking churches, America!
