James has recently been overseas on an incredible european culinary adventure while we have stayed home drooling over he and his lady's insta feeds. On his return he had a nasty flu and then made us this mix.
Here's what he told us;
My musical background is - I play guitar and sing in a band called Best Bets. Before this I was in a band called The Transistors for almost as long as I can remember.
My favourite brands are - Georgia Alice & Lonely Lingerie.
My idea behind the mix - a bunch of quite disparate stuff that somehow seems to fit together to me, who knows - it might just be super jarring. I threw some old favourites in with some new discoveries that I've been enjoying, plus a couple of local favourites.
