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.
"I would personally like to never hear any pop song EVER again. I despise pop punk/emo music. I am not sorry."
"On tour I kept staring out the window listening to Siren 042 by Lala Lala and WHY? on a loop, it's beautiful"
"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."
"What song gets me in the mood to dance? 'Double Doutch' by Malcolm McLaren. Also 'Double Dutch Bus' by Frankie Smith. I swear I don't have a rope fetish"
'We saw James Blake at Glastonbury a few years ago. It was so amazing- it felt like I
was in a hypnotic trance or like deep in meditation. We both walked away feeling
pretty mind blown.
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.
"A gig we'll never forget?
Our first time playing the Troubadour in LA. There was so much love in the room that night."
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.
"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 makes you cry?
Over Christmas I heard River by Joni Mitchell and it got me good.
