Vadoinmessico is a British band who I’ve been a fan of for about a year or so, I’ve even put them on a couple of Mixcasts before. They released a self-titled EP last year, but this is a new song they’ve released as a prelude to some upcoming singles, EPs and a full length album towards the end of the year. I’ve listened to this song a bunch now and I’m really digging it, the vocals have kind of an Animal Collective sound to them. Take a listen, I think you’ll dig it.
Seeing as how it’s Monday I suppose I should be a good little blogger and give you a new Mixcast. This week’s mix is a lot of new music that I hope you haven’t heard yet. It all came together really well and quite quickly, and I think overall it’s one of my best to date. The songs are all rather upbeat and fun and I think they blend together really well, making the transitions pretty seamless.
I will say that my narration is bit… silly. It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these so I think I’m a bit rusty. Plus I need to buy a real microphone, which I’ll be doing ASAP, so that it doesn’t sound so tinny and crappy. I promise future versions will start to sound better.
And just as a side note, I had no idea that First of the Gang to Die was a Morrissey song… whoops.

The Mixcasts are back and better than ever! This is a big collection of everything I’ve been listening to, just so you know what you’re getting into. I actually put this together when I was in New York, so that was where my head was at. I’d say it’s pretty upbeat for the most part and there should be some fun stuff you may have not heard before. I tried to get kind of a summer-y feeling to it. I’d say it’s a pretty good way to start the weekend. Maybe put it on if you go to the beach?
From here on out I’ll be back to releasing this on Mondays, so be ready for more tunes soon. If you’d like to let me know which songs you liked or any ideas for themes I’m always up to hearing from you. Thanks for waiting patiently for this little friend to come out.
Finally I have to give a huge thanks to my friend Kim Høltermand who allowed me to use beautiful photos for the covers of the Mixcast. This might be a new trend I start where I’ll use artists/designers/photographers to contribute to the covers of mixes. Just another way to share the work of talented folks out there!
