This week's mix is a little unusual in the sense that it is melancholy-tinged manic-pop; Two styles which normally don't mix. Everyone I come across lately seems in a strangely similar mood - everything around us is full of doom & gloom, yet with this weird manic streak... With the cold cold winter, the recession, the floods, the budget, and everyone being broke... but Christmas and a new decade on the horizon, it's strangely hopeful. I thought I'd try and capture that mood with a mix. Here's to spending your last dime on some Druids cider and dancing through that dark cold night til the sun peeps out of them clouds.
