Believe me, we’re both as equally confused and excited as you are…
The eclectic DJ collective have broken their silence today with a new mixtape. The tape entitled Sleepy Bedtime Mix For Young Ones by Henry Chinaski (that’s the name of author Charles Bukowski’s protagonists) is up streaming and available for download at the Pinch & Friends site.
The mix is more subdued than regular Avalanches material (hence the lullaby theme) and features music from Joanna Newsom, Beach Boys, Free Design, Bobby Darin, and others. We love the intro featuring a clip from Michel Gondry’s film The Science of Sleep, as well.
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
We talk with Israeli rockers Vaadat Charigim about some of their favorite records.
We talk with Yvonne Ambree and Jesse Barnes of Take Berlin about some of the records which influenced the recording of their debut EP, Lionize.
