Feels like we post these FACT mixes every time they release them, but they're a great window into the minds of artists that we spend a lot of time listening to. Coming with some of the most obscure tracks yet, Mike Sniper bka Blank Dogs throws ultra obscure stuff in with new favorites he'll be releasing on Captured Tracks (Cosmetics' "Honey Honey" is an obvious standout). If you're imagining a lot of cold guitar and tiny keyboard melodies, you'd be imagining right. But the reason it works best of all is that it's like a half an hour primer of your favorite bands' favorite bands' favorite bands. Somewhat related: fellow New York synth goth enthusiasts Silk Flowers put together a mix of some of their own favorites for No Conclusion. Parallel paths!
