MIX // Twin Shadow's MOMUS
im_ur=twin-shadow-low1
HIYA // George's arm/tatt

 

Twin Shadow described his break-up mix for Oki-Ni (who, if you didn't know, do a fabulous mixtape series besides fabulous clothes) with, 'I was thinking about blaming everything on girls.' So, yeah this mix is 'melancholy and wounded...tied together by a feeling of bitter-sweet loss'. But at the same time, and perhaps much more apparent (in my ears at least), is the sound of the mild self-derision that can ring heartbroken self pity. It is, after all, named after the Greek God of mockery, Momus; because lurve makes fools of us all baby.

 

The transitions are a little random on this one, but it gets by. I mean, when you're in the midst of enjoying your own desolation and heartbreak, you can be a little erratic. Even if it's just over the despair of it being another Monday. Stream it below the tracklist:
