getting caught up on the two mixes that dropped through my door before Christmas now that i've gotten back to civilisation.
first up, i listened to @Trev's yesterday. firstly i appreciate The Dark Hedges on the cover!
interesting mix this, packed with bands/artists I'm aware of but haven't really checked out, including ones I really should have listened to by now like Unwound and Codeine. I like a bit of Faust but hadn't heard this track, I like Dave Pajo's work with others but hadn't gotten round to his Papa M stuff and I failed to get into Cocteau Twins a few years ago and gave up very quickly, so this was quite a good little intro to all of those, all of whom I quite enjoyed and will be investigating a bit more.
i've tried listening to Grouper's albums before and always been very bored by the time i'm halfway through (apart from the Helen one) but one track in the context of a mix worked quite well, plus this one seemed a bit more melodic than some of the other stuff. also nice and wintery.
of the more familiar stuff, Broadcast are always a good pick and this one's clearly been a popular choice seeing as it's on @bornin69x's mix as well, which i have on right now (i went for a different Broadcast song on mine cos i don't have Haha Sound), and The Fall one is a favourite of mine (also on @bornin69x's mix, though interestingly one went for part 1 and the other for part 2 - i wanted to open my mix with 1 and end with 2 but had to jettison them both in the end).
don't think there was anything on here i didn't like. thanks!
