The Show: Retro-a-go-go

As mentioned at the start of the show, Mike D is the latest artist to be pressganged into making a runway mixtape for a haute couture fashion show. He’s done a freaky mix for Kenzo. [Thx Dangerous Minds]

Speaking of fashion shows, while the Justice “Planisphere” mix for the Dior Homme summer 2009 show is the sweetest of them all, the set that Chromatics did for the Chanel spring/summer 2013 show is super classy.

The Show: WARNING. May contain traces of jazz.

This is what you call a freakout. The Bruce Springsteen cover version was pretty damn spooky but Neneh Cherry‘s version of Suicide’s 1979 single “Dream Baby Dream” is crazy. Like someone strangling a saxophone. Have a listen below. God bless those crazy Norwegians at Smalltown Supersound.

Pssst… The Herb Whisperer recommends buying the February 2012 issue of Mojo. The covermount CD is New Order’s 1983 masterpiece “Power, Corruption & Lies” covered, Blue Monday revisited, and  bonus tracks. Could have been a recipe for a disaster but you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Have a sneak preview of the tracks here.

The show: It could all end in tears. Or Phil Collins.

It really could end in tears, or more likely, Phil Collins. That’s right, Fraserhead has the studio to himself today while The Herb Whisperer does some advance scouting for the Laneway Festival in Auckland (so that we can better stalk M83).
