Give My Love To Kevin

This has been backlogging quite a bit. Holidays, then learned about Mixcloud (thanks Matty!), started compiling new ambient jamz for new Mixclouds, then got sidetracked with scouring boxes and youtubing for a "shoegaze" compilation for a friend, which got me side-sidetracked discovering Acetone which I totally ignored at the time but remembered Jason mentioning something to me about them a while back, which, in turn has sort of turned the shoegaze set into a mess and I've had to step back from it for a while. Figured I'd post that to mixcloud as well as an old Oystered mix, Perfect Sound Forever, and my two previously sorta-shoegaze mixes, "Mystery Mix" 1 & 2 all under the new "Cherry Picked" umbrella. New My Bloody Valentine was the perfect cleanser / distraction. It's exciting, and hopefully we'll hear more from Kevin sooner than later. Who doesn't need more glideguitar and seductive, strange songwriting from a true Original Artist in their life? New Mountains is great as well. Music, I think, has never been better. Super excited to see the new forthcoming Main (Hampson revitalized perhaps with one of my long-time faves, Stephan Mathieu) on eMego as well as Andreas Tilliander's new TM404 alias (the samples sound classic deep, Porter Ricks-styled Basic Channel and then some). Take some time to enjoy the new m b v everyone! Can't wait to get my vinyl copy.
