“Some people have stars for eyes/ some people want eyes of stars/ they’ve been like that for yearz-uh…”

Featuring a selection of hand-picked favorites from 2017. All songs either released/ reissued/ repackaged through the course of the year, from the resurgence of shoegaze favorites Ride and Slowdive, to Beach House and Lilys; one of post-punk’s originals, David Henderson (Fire Engines, Win, Nectarine No. 9) under his latest guise, The Sexual Objects, as well as LCD Soundsystem--the only exception being, an unofficial, unreleased what sounds like an uber-proto version of The Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony.” Thank you to the artists and friends, without whose inspiration and generosity this mix would not be possible.

“And some people cannot hold their drink-uh/ they’ve got to tell you what they think-uh / There’s no hate to the point that I give-uh/ I just want Room To Live-uh…”
