The Especially Tasty Global Twang Volume 3

This next installment of my Global Twang mixtape series was an especially fun one to make. For one, all of these songs are covers. Very unexpected covers. Also, this selection has a lot of banjo in it and what says twang better than a banjo? I need to give assistant producer credits to my wonderful ladyfriend DJ Spasmodic who patiently helped me bring this sucker to life. I never knew she was a Kid Kudi fan until we made this and she started singing every word. Too damn funny. The things you learn about people when making mixtapes together!?

Playing off the “Global” theme in “Global Twang”, there are stripped down songs from Sweden’s First Aid Kit and Tallest Man On Earth, acoustic hip hop covers, future legend Elliot Smith playing a tribute to current legend John Lennon and freshies from newishcomers High, High, Benjamin Francis Leftwich and Yellow Ostrich. I’m especially excited about the Dawn Landes version of Young Folks and the Horse Feathers version of the Nirvana classic Drain You.

Cheers, D-Hall
