018 – NZCA / Lines

NZCA/Lines: “We’ve just played a few dates in England and France with Of Montreal, who fill every performance with excitement and energy, so this mixtape is in some way inspired by that. Essentially, an exotic adrenalin rush and a disbelief that you can really be there.” As opposed to the instalments that have gone before, NZCA/Lines’ contribution to our CrackCast series is very much a ‘mixtape’ as opposed to a mix. Providing what the man himself refers to as a “tour of influences”, it’s also a glimpse into what you can expect if Michael Lovett is ever put in charge of the playlist at your house party. A diverse but always upbeat collection stepping from ODB to LCD Soundsystem, Toro y Moi to Robyn and taking in his own productions as well as stone-cold classic cuts, this is a refreshing and worthy addition to the series.
