Mixtape 2

by Andrew Tuttle

supported by


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.
