“Since the beginning of my isolation I feel like I’ve been regressing back to my teenage self, staying home alone is somewhat reminiscent of being 15, and locked up in my room listening to music.

I find warm comfort in re-exploring all the bands I was listening to back then, so here is a mellow mix of songs ranging from Mogwai and Pinback to some weird bossa re-issue I bought last year – general mood definitely erring on the side of emo.”
