St. Vincent Made A Mixtape For An 11-Year-Old On Her First Beats 1 Show

Annie Clark hosted her first Beats 1 radio show on Apple Music last night. The show is called St. Vincent’s Mixtape Delivery Service, and each week she’ll pick a lucky individual to get a mixtape personally curated by her “to serve as a soundtrack for whatever is going on in their lives,” as she explains in the intro.

An 11-year-old girl named Piper was the first person to have a mixtape made for them. She likes Purity Ring and Chvrches and loves to dance, so Clark based her song selections around that by playing things that she “think[s] she’ll love, but probably has missed because she’s 11.” Clark also chats with Piper throughout the show, and the whole thing is so, so cute that I can hardly stand it.

Some of the selections for the first show included Depeche Mode, Deee-Lite, Erasure, the Knife, David Bowie, Bjork, and a bunch more great bands. Basically a primer on awesome music for what sounds like an awesome 11-year-old. You can listen to Clark and Piper’s segments and check out the full playlist for the night below.
