tapes


Cam’s March ears by ash

I love mix tape swaps. Its kind of like christmas, in the respect that you probably enjoy the giving part more than the receiving. Well not in this case as my brother made me a sort of shoegaze come drone come electronica-type mix. It features some awesome stuff like M83, Helios and The Album Leaf but then right at the end is a track by The Portico Quartet. Basically they are amazing and from these shores, London infact. Jazzy drones that recall Steve Reich and Charles Mingus and everything in between.

Also worth noting that Cursive have just released a new album entitled ‘Mama, I’m Swollen’. They played a track on David Letterman recently, which was a strange viewing experience. They kind of come across like a grittier Killers, maybe… Either way the track is superb and they are coming on tour, to Leeds, at which I hope to be there, wherever there may be.
