Mix April 2011

Non-Event has asked me to play a solo performance at Cafe Fixe in Brookline, MA next Tuesday as part of thier “experimental coffeehouse” series. I put together a dj mix to commemorate the event. A lot of this music is what I have been thinking about lately: rhythm, nostalgia, synthesizers, film sound, fake band names, vocal interjections, the music of Hugo Largo (okay, I’m ALWAYS thinking about that), isolationism (remember that?) and cassette murk. Hope you enjoy. This will likely come down in a week or so. You may or may not have noticed that I had to take down some other pieces to make room for this, most of those pieces will come back sooner or later. The cover star for the mix is Katie Jarvis as Mia in Andrea Arnold’s film FISH TANK, which I loved very much.
