The footage of our detailed interview is now forever lost thanks to a really crappy recording. We kept them hostage in the backstage for an hour for nothing, and yet Mary and Rob were kind enough to put together a little something for our guest mix series. And boy are we glad they did!
ICP’s ‘Can’t Feel My Knees’ makes for a perfect intro, followed by a little bit of everything. The mix is a compact blend of experimental and electronic music, some obscurities plus an occasional dance gem, spiced with a slight touch of the eighties and a few discoveries (How did I miss out on that Invisible Conga People 12“? Also, those folks from Chile are pretty chill). Just the way we like it! Mixed Places:

Track 1, "Age of Consent":
The bassline bursts from the silence and never lets up. Indeed, the next thirty seconds are build-up: first the bassline, then manic drumming, then ringing guitar, then groaning keyboards, and finally a lonely voice. Off and running now, we won't be stopping. Energy and insistence dominate the song ... Well, and the bass--always the bass. Its tone is a little too high; it almost rings. Why? Because it's both laying down the melodic foundation of the song, as well as keeping things moving (with the help of breathless drumming). Against this rhythmic/melodic backdrop, the other instruments' entrances are events: the guitar struggles against the bass for melodic supremacy, and immense synth washes push other sounds aside. Let those sounds compete for your attention, and ignore the lyrics. They're standard rigmarole about a crumbling relationship--and not a word of it matters, for words can't approach the power and impact of the music…
