♫♪  Chocolate Grinder Mix 37 - “In Deep & Ant Mew Sick”

Electronic music may be my first love, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the rich variety and engrossing lyricism rock has to offer. From Oy’s tale of overcoming fears to take a wizz in the middle of the night and The Fugitives’ detailed investigation of their apartment building society to Woodpigeon’s heart-wrenching survival of a broken relationship and a selection from Anaïs Mitchell’s engrossing acoustic rock opera, “In Deep & Ant Mew Sick” is as much a collection of short stories as it is a mix tape. This mix is just as interesting musically as it is lyrically, though, featuring everything from toe-tapping, banjo-driven folk to offbeat, psychedelic synth pop.
