Premiere: 13XL let us into their secret basement shows on ‘Show You The Whole World And Show You How It Spins’
Virginia Wing are taking their slinky motorik jams out on the road with Hookworms later this month, supporting their album 'Measures of Joy' – released in November via the newly-reanimated Fire Records (Spacemen 3, Neutral Milk Hotel, very early Pulp, etc.).
Before that, the band's Sam Pillay hooked up with Hookworms guitarist MB to compile this pre-tour mixtape. Every song on it is a killer and should satisfy your urges for weird, experimental, but sorta poppy electronic music. There's stuff from ALAK, the Californian experimental pop musician associated with patten's Kaleidoscope label, classic material from TG's Chris Carter, the eternally inspiring Liaisons Dangereuses, new stuff from Vessel, some acid house, some Martin Rev, and the Oakey/Moroder classic Together In Electric Dreams. You'd be a Grade A moron to miss out on it.
Stream the mix below and peep the band's tour dates after the jump. Tickets are available here.
