Do you like rock music…? Mixtape #4 from Kicking Against The Pricks magazine

“Rock and roll is here to stay” sings Ruth Radelet of Portland band The Chromatics in ‘Into the Black’, the first track of CALM’s May mixtape from Kicking Against the Pricks. It’s the second leaked single from what promises to be a cult album of melancholic soundscapes of their 2012 ‘Kill for Love’. It’s hypnotising.

Elsewhere, John Lydon’s plunging into ‘Deeper Water’ in a new track from a recently-reformed Public Image Limited, before the uneasy atmospherics of The Liars’ ‘Octagon’ leads into the hipster aggro of Death Grips, the soundtrack to stomping down a street in a ratty temper. Japandroids psych up a Gun Club classic, whilst Codeine, recently reformed for a few final shows, are featured with their ‘3 Angels’, before we end on a rarefied, shimmery and downright plaintive note with My Bloody Valentine’s ‘Angel’. You can read the interview with Codeine in the new Issue 20 of Kicking Against the Pricks here.

Big thanks to Daniel Dylan Wray for this compilation!
