Of course Talking Heads are one of my favourite bands and this is from the Luaka Bop label that their frontman David Byrne set up sometime ago that has released some great stuff throughout the years.

My good friend Anna Kucharska sent me a link to their soundcloud and to this mixtape, which I was thrilled to discover. Originally, this mixtape was released in 2009 but I’ve never heard it before but it sounds awesome man.

It’s by the artist Javelin and yup, it’s like the perfect soundtrack for an Island hop:

Also here is a free download of a track from the same artist’s forthcoming release on the label and this is pretty great too:
