Review | Bell X1 – Arms

The Last Mixed Tape reviews Arms, the brand new studio album from Irish indie-rock outfit Bell X1.

Jolts of disjointed sounds and beats that punctuate the group’s serene indie […]

Review | Pixie Geldof – I’m Yours

The Last Mixed Tape reviews I’m Yours, the debut solo album from alternative-pop artist Pixie Geldof. There’s a wonderful haziness at the heart of I’m Yours. The record sways with atmospheric patient productions that provide the perfect undercurrent for Pixie Geldof’s bewitching vocal. I’m Yours is an album that takes its time, but it’s time worth spending. Geldof’s debut solo outing drifts from lush indie-folk […]

If you seek out the darkened corners and icy atmospheres found within Katie Kim’s music than the artist’s third album is a journey worth taking.
