I Don't Like Your Mixtapes

Mixtape therapy.



Dream St. is a continuation of the previous So Lo-Fi compilations I put together a couple months ago. Initially, I wanted to include some new tracks from Friendly Fires, Hooray for Earth and Gang Gang Dance but, because of their more complex production and sound, it just wouldn’t have meshed well with the overall theme.

The mixtape’s first half features more rock-oriented lo-fi tracks, starting out with TERRY MALTS and tunes from SHIMMERING STARS and CAT’S EYES. The remaining songs drift into slower melodies from THE RAVEONETTES, PAPERCUTS and, from previously featured artists on the Mecca Lecca label, HOWTH and THE SANCTUARIES.

Simply put, Dream St. is the mixtape for your summer- during the day or night.
