Playing tracks by
Mercury Rev, H.E.L.P., Golden, Kathys Song, She Could Never Be Me and more.
This mix was recorded in March 2012 to tie in with a 2 night stand of shows The Little Kicks put on at Celler 35 in Aberdeen.
Firstly, the thinking was that the band are providing the entertainment on the Friday and Saturday nights for everyone, why not provide a soothing soundtrack to Sunday's hangovers too.
Secondly, one of my (steven's) favourite mixes is by a DJ called Michelle Owen entitled Songs For The Loveless/ The Loved Ones (Grab it here: http://michelleowen.wordpress.com/2010/07/21/dj-mixhirvio-288-songs-for-the-loveless-and-for-the-loved-ones/).
The mix is mainly made up of all vinyl tracks and is not like a traditional "DJ Mix" in the fact that its not at all banging but instead it has a kind of warmth/ dusty old sound to it which gives it a bit of character. I for one have found several favourite tracks and bands from it and it has the sound of almost like being in a friends living room while they show you some of their records.
