Self-Titled Magazine kindly asked me to compile a mix for them, which is now streaming here. The track selection is focused around the feelings and inspiration related to House of Low Culture, though it isn't totally comprehensive. There were a good many things I would have included were the length of the mix limitless (and if I had mp3s of many albums I only have on vinyl)... Lull, Nurse With Wound, Pita, Everlovely Lightningheart, Daniel Menche, James Plotkin (solo and duo work), William Fowler Collins, Loren Connors, Lustmord, Nortt, Coil, Pan Sonic, Earth - all of these (and many more), have had an impact on the music of HOLC, or somehow evoke similar feelings for me with their music. Thanks to ST for hosting this, and I hope anyone who listens will enjoy what they hear and hear something new.
