Nuggets 324 – Covers X – Morning

Covers, lots of covers. On discovering a new artist my first instinct is to seek out the songs that they have covered by other artists.

There is a strong Daniel Johnston vibe to this mix.

Nuggets 246 – Driving Electro 9 – Fast

Nuggets 246 - Driving Electro 9
This mix is inspired by the recent Italians Do It Better mix, After Dark 2. It’s got a cool European electro sound with excellent female vocals and disco’y beats. I added some tunes of my own to a selection of the After Dark 2 tunes.

There are 4 tracks here from AD2 along with tracks from Psychic Ills (think Moon Duo but better), Jesse Ruins, Daughn Gibson and the wonderfully named Emergency Bible Study with their song “Robbert Zimmerman Practices Guitar in Front of the Mirror”, and others

This mix is a current favourite when on the road.

Not all the tracks are up yet. When I have time I will add some more videos.

I just found out that Anika is playing in Auckland on Friday 11 October. Yeah
