Show 104 is dedicated to the 3rd in our award-winning WHITE MINK : BLACK COTTON (Electro Swing vs Speakeasy Jazz) series of double albums which is out this week. Pretty nearly the whole of both discs from the impeccable vintage stylings of Black Cotton on disc 2 to the electro swing gems (including many exclusives) on White Mink get an airing. Plus a few classics from the first 2 albums and a handful of new releases thrown in for good measure.
The original White Mink CD in 2009 launched what was at the time, a new genre but went on to become an album-charting silver disc, attracting phenomenal critical acclaim and a devoted cult-following;
"Electro Swings first landmark moment" (Mixmag)
"Sublimely decadent" (Clash)
"Perfect" (The Guardian)
White Mink 3 is OUT NOW!
