I hate single artists mixes. But as I was listening to so much Nick Drake lately, I thought 'c'mon Anton, why not just do it?' So I did it. I made a mix of my favourite Nick Drake songs. Well, my favourites at the time. Inevitably they'll change every day.
It was surprisingly easy making a Drake mix because all of his songs, while different in many ways, still sound similar in an almost enigmatic way. Which is nice. And it means each songs leads in to the other nicely! I really like the way that 'Sunday' - a beautiful instrumental track - is around the middle of the mix, giving a quick break from the intensity of emotion which Nick's voice evokes. The ending also really does it for me, with those four-odd notes of 'Know' coupled with Nick humming along and then singing softly...'know that I love you.' Amazing stuff.

By the way, my favourite Nick Drake track? Definitely Been Smoking Too Long. Fuckin' incredible!

Oh, this is so lovely. I've never seen a Nick Drake mix before, and it is about time. Really nice job. :)
