♫♪  Guest Mix: Ba Da Bing & Northern Spy - SXSW 2014 Showcase Mix

Last year, Tiny Mix Tapes had the pleasure of throwing a big party with Northern Spy at SXSW called Unisex Earplug. This year, TMT’s sitting this one out due to a torn ACL, but Northern Spy’s back in Austin once again to fight the good fight, this time putting on an official SXSW showcase with like-minded Brooklyn label, Ba Da Bing. Their showcase features a tasty experimental-/psych-leaning lineup of Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger (Sean Lennon & Charlotte Kemp Muhl), DVA, NYMPH, Slothrust, Cloud Becomes Your Hand, and Cross Record. Watch the trailer for the “best showcase if you just wanna be held” here, and then RSVP to the whole shebang here.

In anticipation for the showcase, we’ve asked both Northern Spy and Ba Da Bing to create guest mixes. And they did! Check them out below, and if you’re out at the clusterfuck that is SXSW 2014, then check out their showcase this Friday at Palm Door.
