SESSION 58: At Home With Rose

Pop goes the (indie) weasel


Well, a girl can't listen to experimental all the time. Here's some new poppy tunes. Sometimes it's just what I'm in the mood for. Especially at the moment. I have a stinking cold and it's so busy at work that I can't take a sick day. So some nice pop music in the office gets the day off to a snapping pace. That, and some good cough mixture, and my day is not so bad.

Some pop I can't abide, but give me some shimmering dreampop and something with a krautrock twist and you'll have me twittering and shimmying round the office.

Warning: this mix starts out the least poppy and by the end of it we have some very poppy electro. Be warned. You may want to dance. Don't be put off by the inclusion of Robyn. Personally, I adore her Swedish cuteness that also packs a dirty punch.

Favourite from this mix though, is Florida's Surfer Blood. So much fun.
