Upcoming My Old Kentucky Blog Presents concert events, powered by Do317.com
Music isn’t always about the latest and greatest. What is old to one generation is new to the next. So we thought what better way to discover new (and old) music than to ask some of our favorite artists currently to create a mixtape of songs and artists that influenced what they are aesthetically and sonically. With that idea in mind, MOKB is proud to introduce a new mixtape series we have dubbed INFLNCD.
The first band to contribute is Brighton, UK five-piece Phoria. Earlier this year, they released one our favorite collections of music with their Display EP (stream here) via X Novo. While many of the selections are not necessarily all that surprising given their textured, falsetto-led compositions, they did throw in some excellent lesser known entities such as late ’90s, early aughts English six-piece The Cooper Temple Clause, one-time Sparklehorse member Sophie Michalitsianos aka Sol Seppy, and Buckinghamshire singer Martin Grech. The result is fusion of lush soundscapes that flows seamlessly from start to finish and sure to fit in well during your next moment of introspection. Find the downloadable Soundcloud stream along with tracklist below and purchase their highly recommended Display EP here.
