MIXTAPES

The Hook mixtape is compiled through a series of music related questions. Each artist who fills it out can answer as many or as few of the questions as they wish, and elaborate on their choices, or let them speak for themselves. 

"The song that gets me in the mood for romancing? John Cage 4'33"

"I would personally like to never hear any pop song EVER again. I despise pop punk/emo music. I am not sorry."

"If the world were ending, what would be the last piece of music you'd want to hear?"

'I borrowed my dad's Deep Forest cd & would crawl under my bath when the water was hot & listen on headphones.'

"A gig we'll never forget? 

Our first time playing the Troubadour in LA. There was so much love in the room that night."

A song which makes you cry? 

Over Christmas I heard River by Joni Mitchell and it got me good.

"On tour I kept staring out the window listening to Siren 042 by Lala Lala and WHY? on a loop, it's beautiful"

'Hey That’s No Way to Say Goodbye by Roberta Flack  makes me cry every time'

"A lot of people have told me they listen to TOPS in a 'Let’s Get it On' kinda way, and I fully support that."

"A lot of Big Thief songs make me cry every single time I listen to them. Adrianne Lenker is, in my opinion, the best poet and lyricist alive right now."

"I used to put on Shiver by Coldplay every night when I was at school and cry about boys. Now I realise I was just crying about the song ."

"my first concert was David Bowie touring for Outside with Nine Inch Nails. They duetted on “Hurt” as a transition between sets. My Dad was super confused."

"Daniel Johnson, True Love Will Find You In The End is the most genuine song I’ve ever heard. It’s so simple but so emotional."

The South Korean artist picks her Mixtape tracks - including Bedouine, Matt Maltese and more.

A song which reminds you of your childhood  “The Sign” by Ace of Base. I used to put this song on and dance in front of our living room window at night...

I was pretty obsessed with Disney’s ‘Tarzan’ film growing up. Whenever I hear the song ‘You’ll Be In My Heart’ I well up a little.

Your go- to karaoke song?  

Living on a Prayer Bon Jovi..

I had the chance to see Wu Tang Clan at a festival and decided to go the techo tent instead. Classic mistake that I might make again.

My favourite place to listen to music? 

Driving around in the car! Windows down! Moon roof open!

"There is nothing I would not hear again. Give me one bottle of Cider and what was once rinsed is fresh again."

A song which gives me goosebumps?

White Noise by Kojaque.
