Plastic Platform C31: Lovelier Other
The somewhat mysterious Lovelier Other released a debut track last last year, 'Leave This Behind', that seemed to effectively fall from the sky.
Such was its quality we asked them immediately to create a mix for us, and here we present you with our first Plastic Platform mix of the year - in fact the series is now one year old. Celebrate with a selection of tracks new and old.
"Here's an eclectic mix of what is currently inspiring us and some that have been inspiring us for awhile."
- Flying Lotus - All In
- Paul & Linda McCartney - Ram On
- Tropics - Ophelia
- Here We Go Magic - Miracle of Mary
- Beach House - Tokyo Witch
- Heather Woods Broderick - Cottonwood Bay
- Heathered Pearls - Beach Shelter
- Camera Obscura - Country Mile
- Pascal Pinon - Bloom
- Owen Pallett - Red Sun No. 5
- Grizzly Bear - Deep Blue Sea (Daniel Rossen Home Recording)
Here are 12 tracks that have pretty much opened my eyes to experimenting with my own sound. It's all very inspiring and some were even "game-changing" for me in a sense. I found AGES through a mix hosted by cold-rockin.com, one of my favorite sites on earth, everything about this song is crazy. I really dig the atmosphere and the vocal sampling here and who can resist that intro and outro. [read more]

Below you will find the playlist equivalent of the week we've had. Enjoy. [read more]
