Mix: Top Story: State.ie Mixtape – Kiss the Girls

For no other reason than to celebrate their amazingness, this week’s mixtape is a girl-centric jamboree of leading ladies, indie chanteuses, sirens and pop’s new princesses (the ones who haven’t gone GaGa).

Glasser call us to shore with the enchanting ‘Tremel’, Cults brings us outside and Mountain Man have some spell binding three part harmonies on ‘Soft Skin’. Henparty, Thomas Tantrum and Tieranniesaur serve us some bright lo-fi indie pop while 2.54, Zola Jesus and Low Sea paint in altogether darker shades. Lissie goes country, there’s glitchy pop doodlings from Lali Puna, Sleigh Bells and Crystal Castles get remixed and the amazing Penelope Trappes of The Golden Filter lends her vocal to an immense UNKLE track.
