The Art of the Mix

I have a real soft spot for the art of the mix.  Those perfect compendiums of music drawn of diversity and pure passion.  TheLateNightTales series of compilations has long been a favourite of mine with one-of-a-kind playlists assembled by a diverse array of some of the most compelling artists making music including:  The Flaming Lips, Air, Belle and Sebastian, Arctic Monkeys, Four Tet and many more.  The list is a long one but it’s also a great one.  The results being some very compelling and enjoyable listening.  The compilation series has lined up yet another groundbreaking act to curate the next entry in the series: MGMT. Their compilation arrives on October 3rd, and it features tracks from people like the Velvet Underground, Felt, Suicide, Spacemen 3, and Disco Inferno. It also features an exclusive MGMT track: The band's cover of the Bauhaus song "All We Ever Wanted Was Everything".  Check out the compilation's diverse track listing below.
