As I was feeling the brunt of my music burn-out earlier this year, I found myself taking refuge in the sounds of the avant-garde. For a while, my listening diet consisted of a steady diet of ambient and post-rock instrumentals from the likes of Stars of the Lid, Rachel's, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Brian Eno and Tim Hecker. Around this same time I met a like-minded soul whom I bonded with at a party over a mutual love of glitchy electronic music ala Boards of Canada, Plaid and Four Tet. After months of swapping countless album recommendations via flash drives, we finally joined forces creatively in the form of a DJ mix. The result is a decidedly mellow and avant affair ideal for a long reading session or as an ethereal soundtrack to unwind at the end of the day.
