Guest Mixtape: Dessa
We’re extremely excited to have Dessa back in Chicago next weekend. After an amazing New Year’s Eve show at Lincoln Hall, she’ll be back for two nights with Anticon’s WHY?. Ahead of that, she kindly put together this 13 track mix of some of her favorite songs. Enjoy below and grab some tickets for next weekend here.
Guest Mixtape: The Dig
New York quartet The Dig have been building some buzz from their first two full-lengths of ’80s shoegaze-inspired rock. It’s a Cure-meets-T. Rex sound that utilizes dark keyboards, with enough reverb to drown Robert Smith. You & I marks the band’s third release in two years (following last year’s full-length, Midnight Flowers, and their first 2013 EP, Tired Hearts), those sets comprising an impressive sum of 21 consistently nocturnal and sedated songs. - Consequence of Sound
Guest Mixtape: Operators
You may remember Wolf Parade. Or Handsome Furs. Or Divine Fits. Now, meet Operators. Dan Boeckner’s latest project will be at Schubas this Saturday but, before that, he kindly passed along a guest mixtape featuring some songs you’ve likely never heard. Enjoy below and grab some tickets while you still can for Saturday’s show.
Guest Mixtape: Bob Log III
A big thanks to Bob Log III for providing us with our latest guest mixtape. The limitations of Spotify unfortunately cut his 21 track mix down to 15, but, as you can imagine, it’s still great.
