Never Ending Internet Mix Tape

a musical exquisite corpse. look it up.

Vol 03 / Trk 14 / Snake Charmer

Honestly I am perplexed by that last track. It lacks both the “spindly” nature of Sleater-Kinney and the rocking tone the mix has generated thus far. Not to knock the track however, as it is quite nice. But I am just not sure how to respond.

Doing the best to both capture a more bare-bones aesthetic as well as a slightly trance-like composition, I give you the Warmers — a Dischord-era trio that manages to sound insanely stripped down and immediate. I find this song, building on “eastern-ish” sonic tropes, completely mesmerizing in its use of contrasts. Unaffected guitars and shouted vocals against hushed melodies and an arrangement that builds and evolves unexpectedly.
