For the next installment of the XLR8R podcast, we turn our attention towards the inventive and at times quite bizarre roster over at Sufjan Stevens' Asthmatic Kitty imprint. Founded in 1999 by a collective of like-minded musicians from Michigan, the label has since risen to prominence thanks to the likes of Rafter, Shapes and Sizes, Cryptacize, I Heart Lung, and Stevens himself. Musically diverse and always impossible to pin into one genre, this mix is a good indication of what's in store for the label over the coming months. Fun fact: The name Asthmatic Kitty refers to a pregnant stray feline the label founders adopted in the early '90s.
