"This selection delves deeper into their shared influences and inspirations, along with a subtle nod to digging for rare sampled beats; not perhaps a trait usually associated with B&S. World-wide psychedelic breaks thread the mix together; significantly so with two tracks from Broadcast bookending the first half that includes '60s dreamers the Wonder Who? and Joe Pass, father of Ethio-jazz Mulatu Astatke, harpist Dorothy Ashby and the 21st century beats of Gold Panda. Following a mid-second detour through dissonant post-punk and deep jazz courtesy of the Pop Group and Stan Tracey Quartet; recent releases from fellow Scots Remember Remember and South Carolina's Toro Y Moi rubs shoulders with Ce'cile's 2002. Cure referencing riddim 'Rude Bwoy Thug Life' and Blood Sweat & Tears classic version of 'Spinning Wheel.' For the obligatory Late Night Tales cover version, Belle and Sebastian have chosen the Primitive's 1988 pop-punk classic 'Crash,' recreated in the band's own inimitable style. Two beautiful records close the mix: Steve Parks haunting soul vocal 'Still Thinking of You' and an excerpt of the calm improvisation 'On the Other Ocean' from David Behrman's 1977 experimental album. As ever, the trip concludes with our bedtime story with the third part of Paul Morley's 'Lost for Words.'"
