Mixtape #73

This month's guest mixtape comes from the excellent, eccentric and boisterous Perhaps Contraption. The nine piece art-rock brass marching band is known for its high energy shows, blending a wide variety of musical genres like post-minimalism, jazz, contemporary classical, and avant-rock. We're happy to confirm that the music selection sent to us by artistic director and piccolo/flute player Christo Squier is just as eclectic, fun and frantic.


Devendra Banhart releases new video for track from latest album Mala


Just yesterday melancholy master Devendra Banhart honoured us with a new masterpiece video for ‘Fur Hildegard von Bingen’, a track featured on his most recent Nonesuch released album Mala. Visually clean frames paired with great cinematography skills set the background for a short and powerful song inspired by famous medieval philosopher and composer Saint Hildegard von Bingen. It’s thought provoking. And below is the video, directed by Isaiah Seret, with a small add-on, the still fresh remix of Devendra’s track ‘Golden Girls’ done by Hauschka – very good stuff indeed!
