I made this mix in August 2015.
The idea behind this one, after the introduction track by Incubus, was to keep the vocals to a minimum so that when we arrive at tracks 15 and 16, they really have a strong emotional impact.
The mix climaxes with two excellent covers. Iron & Wine and Ben Bridwell from Band of Horses cover my favorite Talking Heads song.
Lenka, who I know nothing about, brings new life to “Gravity Rides Everything,” one of my favorite Modest Mouse songs.
Unfortunately not all of the songs are on Spotify, so I hyperlinked them below.
