Merchandise have shared the latest mixtape from their WMix series, as they head out on the road for a string of Florida dates with Parquet Courts.
Relaunched last year, this sequence is a guest mix by friend-of-the-band David West (Rat Columns/Rank Xerox/Lace Curtain/Total Control/LIBERATION) and features music by Chet Baker and Lou Reed, amongst others. You can listen to the full mix, and hear the previous releases, via the band’s Mixcloud profile here, or in the player below.
Carson from the band said “David is a great friend of ours and a spiritual brother in many ways. IT seems like few musicians/traveling madmen can relate, not only to us artistically, but personally too, like Ol’ DW has/does. Enjoy!”
Merchandise play their first show with Parquet Courts and Soda tonight (30th January) at The Wooly in Gainesville FL, before a hometown show in Tampa tomorrow night at the American Legion Hall. They finish with shows in Tallahassee and Pensacola on the 3rd/4th February, before gearing up for a US tour with Title Fight in March. All dates and ticket links are below the Mixcloud player.
