music from the forest
For the latest installment of the Stones Throw podcast, James Pants put together this mixtape while "holed up somewhere up in a strange forest in north Washington state" (thus the title). The guy has impeccable taste, as evidenced by his inclusion of classics from Gainsbourg, Moroder, De La Soul, Kraftwerk, Too Short, Silver Apples, the Seeds, and more, all in one stylish and seamless 33-minute trip. Likely the best thing you'll hear all day.
