An early morning mix; mellow, haunting and occasionally twee.
For those curious about the Carpenters track that rounds off this mix, read more here.
Here’s some videos.
Jenny O. Automechanic.
Cate le Bon – Hollow Trees House Hounds. Give her a big hand, she’s Welsh!
CocoRosie – End of Time. Totally bonkers. Many reviewer give the Casady sisters a D- but they have their supporters. I like them fine.
The Luyas – Fifty / Fifty
Waxahatchee – Swan Dive. Katie Crutchfield is all grown up now, so I suppose there won’t be so much screaming, which is a shame.
Widowspeak – Ballad of the Golden Hour
Low – So Blue
Ariel Pink – Only in Dreams. Crazy but good. He has a few demons.
Angel Olsen. She can sing and yoddle at the same time. No mean feat. I am impressed by how quiet the crowd is in this clip of her singing.
Portland Cello Project attempt a track from Beck’s sheet music release.
Acid House Kings – Under Water. The Supremes meet Kraftwerk
Youth Lagoon – Rasberry Cane. Bedroom keyboard mystro made good. Saw him at SXSW2012, it looks like he made it back this year.
