Mixtape: Much Too Late

A companion piece to another mix I did about a year ago called It’s Too Late All of A Sudden. A second round up of newer artists that lean towards ‘70s aesthetics in some capacity. The comp creeps through L.A. Canyon folk, piano pop hangovers that give way to a more neon-lit evening before collapsing in a Sunset hotel room for lack of resolve to return home. Cheap steaks, dim-lit jukeboxes, and last call cocktails mix with the wood paneling. There’s a sense of ‘70s pop’s melt towards something a bit more addled but never agitated. Shades of Let It Be mix with the strains of ABBA from a passing car, an ozone fizz of glam rises for only a moment before being consumed by narcotic whiffs of BOC, Heart, and a JJ Cale cool down, all filtered through a modern crop of artists that make the touchstones feel palpable but echo in strange reverberations.
