New FatCat podcast online now - Bill Morrison
We are excited to announce that acclaimed US director Bill Morrison has compiled the latest mixtape in our podcast series, in anticipation of today’s release of his beautiful new film, the found-footage documentary The Miners’ Hymns.
Maintaining the high standard and eclectic personal choices of the series, Bill has donated us a collection of ‘Summertime Blues’ tracks, naming his mix the same in doing so. Click play on the embedded Mixcloud player above or download directly through iTunes here to play.
Summertime Blues. I tried to find a mix that flowed through different genres and eras, but always using rhythm to narcotic effect, with some melancholy feeling like a summer day is passing away before you. This a soundtrack to that day, and its passing.
