A friend of mine made an excellent Spotify playlist called "Atmospheric Songs for Travelers" which had some great music from John Martyn, Nick Drake, Wilco & more.(I saved it as my own playlist which is why name is on it if you click the link.)
Listening to that collection made me want put together my own mix of vocal music. I don't do vocal mixes very often but I thought it'd be nice to do one now, while all that music is swimming around in my head.
The songs are very laid back. Most are acoustic. Some new music(Antlers, Bon Iver, Horse Thieves) and some old stuff(John Martyn, Loudon Wainwright, Cat Stevens).
Somehow the mix ended up with 3 covers in it - Iron & Wine - Love Vigilantes(New Order Cover), Josh Rouse - Straight to Hell(Clash cover) and Radiohead - Wish You Were Here(Pink Floyd cover). All brilliant covers.
I have some leftover vocal tunes that might make it into a new mix fairly soon. Then it'll be back to good 'ol low light ambient. For now, enjoy this vocal detour.
