Mix/Q&A on Slow Breathing Circuit

Thanks to one of my favorite music blogs, Slow Breathing Circuit, for the Q&A and guest mix! I got to show off some of my current favorites, including Alison’s Disapproval, Vic/Vicky, Maison Blanche, Baïkonour, Deerhoof, maarja nuut & ruum, Jumping Back Slash, Xqui, Lafawndah, and Thundercat.

(also…avant-garde tunes, plane crashes, and turtles seems like the perfect distillation of my favorite conversation topics).

Check out the post here, and listen to the mix below or on Mixcloud.
