Mixtape 2

by Andrew Tuttle



The second in Brisbane, Australia based avant-country musician Andrew Tuttle's second archival series (the first being 2015's 'Mixtape 1', a collection of pre-album collage pieces), 'Mixtape 2' collects a selection of 'Fantasy League' and 'Slowcation' era compilation contributions, album outtakes and radio commissions together for the first time.

'Mixtape 2' is an audio companion to Tuttle's two studio albums Fantasy League (Someone Good/Room40, 2016) and Slowcation (A Guide To Saints/Room40, 2015), with whirring electronics and shimmering melodies of fragmented acoustic guitar coming to the fore. With these heavily edited adaptations and improvisations, shorn of the liberal lashings of banjo throughout both studio albums, 'Mixtape 2' provides an alternate insight into Tuttle's recording methodology from 2014-2016.

Andrew Tuttle Brisbane, Australia

Andrew Tuttle dwells in a between world where five-string banjo and six-string acoustic guitar sit serenely and purposefully with shimmering waves of decay, reverberation and processed electronics. Holding a space that is abundant and generous, Tuttle makes outsider music that turns its listeners into insiders — beckoning a journey which unfolds many heart-opening moments. ... more
