Playing tracks by
Cold War Kids, Odd nosdam, The Beach Boys, Daedelus, Isolée and more.
I had at least one surprised reaction from my lack of guitar-based music in Mix 1, so with Mix 2 I've tried to mash in a little bit of rock n' roll...
Many of these need no introduction at all... Starting off with Cold War Kids, meshing in with some tasty Alt-Hip-Hop beats from Odd Nosdam (Anticon Records)... Interupted briefly by The Beach Boys (presumably on their way to the beach) and returning with work from Daedelus' first major release.
In the middle third, I bring you Isolée, "electro-jazz" pioneer Rubin Steiner, the latest release from Bonobo and something contemplative by The Doors.
Finally, prepare to have you ears knocked out by Deerhunter followed swiftly by some new(ish) stuff from Jack White and friends (The Dead Weather) with Treat Me Like Your Mother.
