The Sunday-25 Mix, Vol. II: Oberhofer, Belle & Sebastian, The Beatles, Dexy Midnight Runners, Yeasayer, New Order, Aerosmith
Last week we premiered yet another new playlist mix: The Sunday 25 Mix (aka, S-25 Mix). The mix featured 25 songs from any genre and any time in music. We were thrilled with the results; you guys just ate it up. So, it’s definitely going to be a staple of IRC, indefinitely. The S-25 Mix is a great way for us to share music we love from the archives of (mostly) rock and pop music.
As with the first volume, and what will be a regular part of the S-25, we are highlighting an indie band that we want to share. Last week, it was the Austin band Wiretree, and this week it’s Brooklyn’s Oberhofer. Originally the one man band of Brad Oberhofer, a relatively unknown indie artist as of last year, blogger and mainstream music praise, and fan approval, have catapulted Oberhofer’s success in a relatively short time span. You could say, that in a way, Brad Oberhofer is 2010′s Nathan Williams, but without all of the drama and instability. Now armed will a full band, Brad Oberhofer is taking Brooklyn by storm. You’ll just have to hear his/their music to know what that really means. But, first, we’ll kick-off this S-25 Mix with a fan fav from Belle and Sebastian.
