About the show
Playing tracks by
Petra Jean Phillipson + David Holmes, New Kingdom, Howlin’ Wolf, Charlie Hunter & Mos Def, Matthew Dear and more.
This mix is built around New Kingdom's genre-defying tune "Cheap Thrills," which combines raspy-spoken word poetry with a raw, psychedelic grove that blurs the lines between hiphop, funk, and rock. Like the aforementioned band itself, this mix is all over the map, with songs from the Make-Up, the Flamin' Groovies, Earl Zinger, David Holmes, Project Blowed, Tom Waits, Howlin' Wolf, and the Royal Trux. I hope you enjoy the juxtapositions of hi-fi, lo-fi; intensity, listlessness; and old, new-fashioned.
