We’ve tried to limit our World Cup references in the last couple of weeks but the new single from John MOuse (not John Maus) gives us an opportunity to pay our respects to the stand out goalkeepers of the tournament.
To be fair to Mr. MOuse the song isn’t strictly about football and it’s uptempo, dare we say, Britpoppish vibe only represents one aspect of the magnificent “The Death Of John MOuse” album, soon to be released on Crocfingers. There’s also wistful melancholia and noise. We tried to capture all three in a rare Joint triple play on today’s show.
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.
ABOUT THE JOINT
Hosts THE HERB WHISPERER and FRASERHEAD go all over the shop with an eclectic, left-field, and off-kilter selection of cosmic disco, electro, indie, hip-hop, house, dub, and anything with a motorik vibe, plus the occasional guilty pleasure. If the radio sounds broken chances are it’s the THE JOINT.
