Review | The Strypes – Spitting Image

The Last Mixed Tape reviews Spitting Image, the much-anticipated third studio album from the Strypes.  If the Strypes debut album Snapshot was a 1960’s blues-rock throwback than the group’s latest effort Spitting Image sees the Cavan natives moving into the late 70’s/ early 80’s mod revival scene, perhaps in four or five records time they will make something with an air of modernity. But for […]

Review | Rosa Nutty – Pips

The Last Mixed Tape reviews Pips, the brand new extended play from singer-songwriter Rosa Nutty. Pips is a much darker, deeper record than its title and cover would lead you to believe.
