Quaintrelle, Esq.: A Spring Cleaning Mixtape

Few things relax me more than making a mixtape. Today’s playlist merges my affection for electronica and indie punk with sprinklings of esoterica.

This mixtape kicks off a bit rough with Torche. The band isn’t really my bag but I dig the energy of the track and it bleeds well into Public Service Broadcasting. PSB is bizarre. One minute I’ll love a track of theirs but the next I’ll find the same track achingly dull. Ibeyi and Pale Honey might just be some of the best music I’ve heard in a long while. Susanne Sundfor destroyed me with the song ‘White Foxes” from her first album, but the rest of the songs on it did nothing for me. This track ‘Accelerate’ isn’t as good but I find really fun and it sets up the end track quite well.

Track List:
Torche, Loose Men
Public Service Broadcasting, Gagarin
Artisan Loyalist, O Chamelon
Ibeyi, River
Pale Honey, Youth
Summer Cannibals, Something New
Prinze George, Upswing
Susanne Sundfor, Accelerate
Vessels, Elliptic
