Georgian home recording ultra maven Bradford Cox has a new harmonica heavy mixtape available for free download on his blog. It sounds like The Beatles, it sounds like the Appalachians. It also (almost) literally sounds like stoner folk musicians near and far, like Kurt Vile and Bob Dylan, whom Cox covers. His instrumental rework of Vile’s “Freak Train” is particularly enamoring, gleeful. “Afternoon Drive” is IDM. “Wild Love” is Ariel Pink 2003 pill eater music. “Hotel Orlando” is lo-fi Neutral Milk Hotel. It’s all great, schizophrenic, ambidextrous, whatever.
