A brand new mixtape. Feels like it’s been ages since the last one. I’d say this one is more chill and quite than the previous one, almost.

Charli XCX’s latest, titled “Boys”, is seriously addictive, Jessie Ware is back with the smooth “Midnight”, plus new songs from Rhye, Waxahatchee, and St. Vincent among others.
