Left Of The Dial #281 - In The Air

Feb 17, 2017

There's this promo CD, from Air France, titled In The Air, and I guess Air France is just a really hip airline as it's one of the most well-crafted mixtapes I've ever heard. It's an unbelievably chill mix of downtempo electronic music, wistful acoustic tunes, and songs that reside happily within both of those spots. I don't even know how I know about it though I probably got there through Boards of Canada. Anyway, 5000 CDs make up the run on this promotional compilation, I can't find it anywhere, so I attempted to compile it all on Spotify. Some tracks appear to be exclusive to to this release, so there are some things that are missing, and I decided that substituting Nouvelle Vague's cover of New Order's "Confusion" for their cover of New Order's "Blue Monday" was acceptable. I just think this mix sounds good alongside these warm winter sunsets we've been having. 

Left of the Dial airs Friday nights from 9-11 and Saturdays from noon-2 on KRCU.
