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)
