Sometime’s a Lineup comes together really quickly, and almost effortlessly I have all of the right songs in the perfect order. And then sometimes when I have the time to spend indulging in listening to a sh*tload of music and reading up on new stuff that’s come out, I can spend hours putting together the Lineup for the week – going through many iterations of song orders, swapping out different tracks I find along the way and going outside my usual repertoire to create something that feels really special.
That’s what Lineup #49 is. I don’t really know the exact science behind how it got to it’s final state, but I can make a pretty solid bet that Carly Rae Jepsen, Octave Minds, James Blake and Unkown Mortal Orchestra have probably never all appeared in the same hour long mixtape before. So I hope you have as much fun listening to it as I did putting it together for you. And shoutout to ED who sent me SG Lewis – Warm a month before it was cool.
Until next Monday.
