Monthly Mix

Stereogum Monthly Mix: April 2011

April’s mix is female heavy and thematically clustered. It tips off with a track from each of our three most recent Bands To Watch. The remainder features a few songs that are numerically fixated (Brenmar’s “Be The One,” the return of pulseprogramming with “First They Fire,” and Italians Do It Better boss Mike Simonetti’s “Third Of The Storms”), a few focused on beginnings (Pure X’s “Back Where I Began” and Bill Callahan’s “Baby Breath”), and one track itself a beginning (the debut track from Sleep?Over spinoff Boy Friend, “D’Arrest”).
