Well, well, well. What an interesting episode we have here. The juxtaposition of genres will leave you scratching your head, but loving the music nonetheless. The episode is dominated by the reappearance of the great Pretty Lights, who has dropped his most recent masterpiece, A Color Map Of The Sun. I’ve still not listened to it in great depth, but know that its rocking like all his other work. A couple of standouts are included.

This episode generally, however, contains a lot of very chilled out tracks. I found myself wondering if I’m mellowing with age, with the taste in music reflecting that… But then again I have included a rarity for the Breakdown, a rap song! With filthy language, too, mind you, so watch out if you’re playing it over the speakers at work. I deliberately included it last, for this reason, even though the temptation to bat it much further up the order was intense. It features one of my favourite red headed, falsetto-vocalled, harp playing indie artists of all time, Active Child. The song is called Nolita and is effing sweet, worth hanging on to the end for.

Other than these and the chill numbers, there are basically more great tunes from all the albums I’ve been loving of late. Regular listeners will know who I mean. Austra, Surfer Blood, Divine Fits, Gold & Youth, Phoenix and Junip.

Enjoy the weirdness guys :)
