I think it’s safe to say the old skool mixtape is now the height of Internet music fashion. Although it doesn’t quite hold the same romantic connotations as the hand-held variety, Portishead have curated an amazing one here.
Read the press release and track listing after the jump.
On the weekend of 23rd and 24th July 2011 at the stunning Alexandra Palace, London, All Tomorrow’s Parties will present the first UK I’ll Be Your Mirror event, which will be curated by the mercurial Portishead (who headline both nights) and ATP.
Acting as sister events to the world famous ATP Festivals which usually take place in holiday resorts, I’ll Be Your Mirror is a new series of artist curated music, film and art events taking place in cities worldwide.
As well live performances from all of the bands in the mixtape below (+ others), the event will also feature DJs, Film (including director introduced screenings of Richard Ayoade’s Submarine and Mark Cousins’ The First Movie), Quality Food Stalls and more…
