Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.17)

Volume 17 begins woozily with the quite trippy Grails track before booting you up the backside with the surf guitar of Man or Astro-man? and the kick arse FOTL track (“he was good with his hands!”). It also has a distinct electronic feel with great tracks from Pye Corner Audio, BoC, 65dos, Solar Bears and the epic Fuck Buttons track closing the disc. This mix was apparently put together in November 2013 (according to the date on the track listing document) which explains the token “christmas” track by Run The Jewels! 

Having recently discovered John Grant at this time I put a few of his tracks on these mixes, happily they were very well received. The Sinead O’Connor backing vocals on this one always send shivers down my spine. As always, have a listen below.

4. Pye Corner Audio – Black Mist
5. 65daysofstatic – Prisms
