June 2019 Mixtape

While major streamers bring us great stuff, there’s still a lot to dig for and discover out there. So this month we made some picks of songs you may not find and other special live performances we love. Enjoy! We hope it inspires you to get curious and do some digging of your own.

Haruomi Hosono – Watering a Flower

We became obsessed with this simple and repetitive synth track while hearing it play at Muji. It sticks to your ears like fresh mochi on the teeth.

Kumiko Hara – Paradise

Kicks off with an ear worm intro, melts into an early 80s funk that’s perfect for swaying languorously at night while staring out at city lights.

Reuben Bell With The Casanovas – It’s Not That Easy

DJ Cut Chemist dropped this one for a brief moment and we were immediately hooked.

Syd prod by Dornik – Amazing

Not sure how this didn’t make it on to her albums. We once paired it to a Jerry Springer clip for hilarious consequences.

Astronauts etc. ft. Toro y Moi – Rocket Man (cover)

Really nice spacey homage to Sir Elton John’s classic.

The Cure – 10:15 Saturday Night

You’ll be wishing you were in Rotterdam in 1979.

Heatwave – Always and Forever

The fashion. The way the crowd sways. And not a phone in the air.

Eric Burdon & War – Spill The Wine

No need for Eaze. You’ll have a contact high after watching this.
