The mixed up six this time are….
MP3: LITE – The Sun Sank
VIDEO: Best Coast – When I’m With You
I know i don’t usually write anything on the Six Mix posts and usually just stick to the pictures and sounds but i really enjoyed making this one. It’s one of the fave 6 mixes that i’ve had the pleasure to compile. The new Cut Copy track screams summer and the Aussie synth dudes have picked us straight up from where they left us with their last effort, the amazing “In Ghost Colours”. The new track, “Where I’m Going” is the perfect taster for the new album due to drop sometime this coming winter (Australia’s summer), possibly December but maybe even as far off as January 2011. Let’s hope they give our ears a treat and release it asap.
Also, the new album “Dark Night of the Soul” from the very odd trio of DangerMouse, Sparklehorse and David Lynch is unbelievable. The brooding imagery and dark feelings it convey make it a certain contender for album of the year (although Pantha Du Prince still sneaks ahead in that category at the moment). Seriously, don’t just download this album. Go and buy it. The booklet matches the album perfectly. It really is one of those albums you NEED to physically own to fully appreciate. A perfect night time soundtrack.
Now for the rest of the tracks: GhostHustler is Alan Palomo/Neon Indian’s old band. I’m fucking obsessed with Neon Indian at the moment, how i missed out on hearing the album “Psychic Chasms” when it came out last October i’ll never know. I only discovered the Neon Indian project this March. But more of that soon. Enjoy his old work with GhostHustler for the moment.
LITE are a kinda electro rock instrumental Japanese band that Simon told me about. I don’t know how to describe them other than that really.
And ontoPerfume Genius, think of the lo-fi tinkle of piano’s, heartfelt lyrics and ambient soundscapes filling every single second of recording, leaving nothing bare.
As for Best Coast….well, i think i’m in love. I may have fallen head over heels. I love the lo-fi music, i love her style. Fuck it, yeah, i love her.
