Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.35)

This mix is one of my favourites, one of those times that every pick seemed to fit perfectly (with a bit of judicious shuffling)! As they often do in these mixes, the choice of a lot of the tracks came from a very serendipitous period of iTunes shuffle play, for example tracks 6 and 14 came from label samplers and track 8 from a Stiff Records compilation that I wouldn’t ever have thought of including otherwise, oh and that Sabres of Paradise track is a tune! The mix concludes with a nice block of shoegaze and dreampop ending on the Gruff Rhys featuring Mogwai tune.
