Sundaymix by Dusk Grotesk

Note: You can download the mix by clicking the down arrow at the right of the SoundCloud player.

songs, folk, minimalism, instrumental, rock, mallet music
This is a mellow mix, the likes of which one might play on a Sunday afternoon or late at night. It features songs interspersed with instrumentals (lots of mallet and melodic percussion stuff). There is acoustic material from the likes of Nick Drake and Elliott Smith, minimalism from Steve Reich and Philip Glass, bands such as Sonic Youth and Xiu Xiu, and instrumental stuff by everyone from Clark and Machinefabriek to Moondog and Max Roach. It's a collection of stuff I really enjoy and consequently it's not just a litany of obscure bands that I think I am oh-so-painfully-cool to know about, there's all sorts of stuff in there. Wrap this mix around you like a blanket and go back to bed, there's no school today.
