Review | Ships – Precession

The Last Mixed Tape reviews Precession, the debut studio album from electronic duo Ships. Precession is the kind of album that makes me glad to be a critic. It took me completely by surprise.

Review | This Other Kingdom – Rêveur

The Last Mixed Tape reviews Rêveur, the sophomore studio album from This Other Kingdom. My big criticism of This Other Kingdom’s debut L.P. Telescopic was that while the songs were there, the production had failed to live up to the band’s ambition. Rêveur makes up for this past indiscretion with a sound that has heft and adventure to it.
