I made a mixtape of 11 songs that I was obsessively listening during the recording of my album "Songs For A Shadow". You're most welcomed to listen to it. The songs are not really rare or even truly groundbreaking... but they paved the path so to speak. Features beautiful songs by Devendra Banhart, Nina Simone, Crowded House, Billy Bragg, Arto Lindsay, PJ Harvey, Bebel Gilberto, Jamiroquai, David Sylvian, Elliott Smith, and Suzanne Vega. Enjoy!
