Boomkat Product Review:
JD Twitch unzips and unwinds a showreel of summer specials on his prized and highly collectible mixtape series.
Hustling languid jazz, pastoral acoustic guitars, ambient folk, psych pop, and of course a healthy amount of tropical styles, this one’s the most varied and colourful session of the series so far. Spinning the compass to every corner of Twitch’s enviable collection, he navigates kaleidoscopic styles with buttered blends that keep the pace locked to a drowsy but effortless flow primed to soundtrack the bits in between the rain of the British summer.
Tracklist hounds will have to go beg, but take it on trust they’re all doozies, from the opening acoustic licks of ’Summertime’ to the lissom country kiss off and palm wine guitars that round it off, touching on myriad strain of gauzy dream-pop, Hawaiian slide guitar, calypso, lysergic psych-pop lushness, and Cuban rug cutters in between. We’d love to know what that synthy gem is half an hour in to the B-side, but that will to wait until the ID machine does it’s thing. In the meantime, spark up, get your best string vest on, and get this one in the bag for optimal summer flex.
