Hi @dollarsandcents, some overdue feedback from me! I enjoy your mixes, as they definitely have some songs out of my normal comfort zones, but which I like also!
I probably haven’t heard more than a very small handful of songs by Justin T, but do moderately like this megahit.
Really loved the Portico Quartet song, especially the vibraphone-y type sounds. Although it briefly gets a bit too jazzy just after the midway point, but on the whole very good.
The Fluence and Banks songs didn’t immediately jump out at me, but they’ve grown on me a bit.
Apollo Brown - I really like the music/samples (maybe as it’s a bit similar to Kno, who I really liked from the last cd I received from you), although on the whole I’m not too keen on rap vocals.
Not too keen on the next four songs - doesn’t seem to be much happening in the first two, and wasn’t too keen on the next two.
The Christian Loffler song, on the other hand, went down well - would have been happy if it was longer. The Chromatics song was nice, although I almost wanted the song to have a big build up/crescendo. The Clint Mansell song is one of my favourites on this mix, sounds like something that some of Stephen Jones’ instrumental songs might have made.
I have an old album/ep of Marika Hackman’s and saw her live at End of the Road festival a couple of years ago, and enjoyed her set. Still need to listen to her new album. I’ve not heard of Julia Jacklin before, but it’s a nice sweet song.
and finally, krill.minima gets two thumbs up from me. Very subdued and sounding like it’s from deep under the ocean, and very relaxing. Will have a listen to their other songs/sounds.
Ooh, just had a search for the Drombeg song via Bandcamp, as it’s not available on Spotify, and really like this one also. Is the album any good? I can see that the label has a release by another guy I was meaning to properly investigate (Alex Kozobolis), so I should definitely try and listen to both/other artists on that label.
Thanks again - definitely some new stuff for me to investigate and listen to!
