It turns out that finding and sticking to faculty for guest mixes could be a bit challenging. Not to worry though, as we switched it up this week by contacting one of WIRE's most beloved alumni. We are of course, talking about Dave Kreider. Dave graciously put together an essential tunes playlist. Here are his finest selections, along with a few things he had to say about them:
Red House Painters - Katy Song
Grouper - Vapor Trails
"Let me say that each one of these songs were exceptionally pertinent to some significant event in my life. There aren't just tracks that I've been enjoying recently, but they're ones that I could write novels about given their values. Listening to them puts me back in some time or place deeply associated with their context."
Be sure to check out Dave's playlist, with music ranging from the eerie sounds of Aphex Twin, to the psychedelic phenomenon known as Animal Collective. The playlist could either be found embedded to the left, or can be accessed through clicking here. Thank you for tuning into this week's guest mix, and keep an eye out on the blog for many more to come!
