Turntable Kitchen :: June 2012 Mix

I prepared this month’s mix with the specific goal of providing myself with a little traveling music for our vacation. In other words, these tracks are the ones I’ve been meaning to spend a little more time with. And after all, there are a lot of great tracks here worth spending some time with. POP-ETC’s new album represents both a change in name and a change in style for the band formerly known as The Morning Benders, but it doesn’t reflect a change in the quality we’ve come expect from the boys. Cat Power’s “Ruin” is arguably one of the top tracks she’s released to date (not “the best” mind you, but I’d rank it high on the list). Frank Ocean’s “Pyramids” is irresistibly sexy and smooth. Exray’s debut record still has my attention. And what I’ve heard from the Ty Segall Band had left me electrified. Meanwhile we’ve got a collection of straight jams from relative new comers including Joey Bada$$, Tiger Waves, Moons, Manor, Kitty Pryde, Electric Guest, Brothers Hand Mirror (the lead vocalist on the track might sound familiar to Pairings Box subscribers), The Coasts, Alper Atrek, and more. Enjoy!

    It’s the very end of July and I’m still listening to the June Mix. So good!
    I’m curious about which song do you consider Cat Power’s best because I think Ruin’s pretty darn cool.
