Our world renowned mixes are back! Sort of.
Times have changed since we last did one of these, and so has the way we discover and listen to music. In all honesty, I’ve moved house as well and the days of downloading via uTorrent and the like are well gone. So after after four efforts stretching back to 2015 under the Double Double Good Sounds moniker over on Mixcloud, we’ve got our act together and got with the times thanks to Spotify.
When it comes to recommending music, we’ve also dipped our toe into the Spin Doctor articles. But at the end of the day, music is for listening to rather than reading about—at least in the main anyway. We don’t want to be one of those sites that write articles telling you what to think, wear or listen to; there’s enough of them about and it’s all a bit pretentious to be honest. Music especially is about that journey of discovery, experience and forming your own thoughts.
So without waffling on any further, here’s our latest mix of songs we’d like to share with you. It’s packed into a handy Spotify playlist for listening on the go, downloading, copying, slating, hating or whatever it is you want to do. We’ll try and make these a regular thing. Here’s bit more about what you’re about to listen to.
The Fringes of Time brings a heavy 70s West Coast feel into 2019. Unashamedly inspired by the brilliant Sad About the Times and Psychemagik’s Celestial Love for Test Pressing, it’s for Yosemite hippies and late night tales; Laurel Canyon dwellers and long summer days; rock climbing on acid and sleeping under the stars. It’s for open minds and broadening horizons.
Play it in order and turn that crossfade up.
