This mix is a soundtrack for Sunday mornings. Some instrumental tunes, some vocal tracks. All of it mellow & laid back. Perfect for a lazy Sunday morning.
When I did my first Sunday morning mix I wasn't really sure if I even liked it. Then it turned out to be the most listened to mix I've ever had at Mixcloud. Go figure.
Vol. 2 starts with one of my favorite songs of all time, John Martyn's "Small Hours". I think that was the tune that got me into John Martyn in the first place. There are several covers in the mix. The most unusual being Evan Chapman's percussion cover of Bon Iver's Holocene. Evan has a bunch of videos up on his youtube channel that are worth watching. One of my favorites is "Opening" by Philip Glass. I'll definitely have to work some more Evan's covers into other mixes.
Speaking of Bon Iver, there's another cover in the mix with Peter Gabriel doing "Flume" and then Gabriel gets covered by Twin Shadows doing "Here Comes the Flood." And we have another Bon Iver tune, this time done live by Justin Vernon & Sean Carey for 4AD sessions.
There are two other tracks also taken from live sessions, Daughter - In The Shallows from a Daytrotter session and Iron & Wine - Tree by the River from a 4AD session. All three live tunes are cool because they are so organic & intimate.
