Solar Bears Exclusive Radar Mix

By Jaimie Hodgson

Posted on 23 Jul 10


Dublin duo Solar Bears are the Planet Mu's latest signing. They make analog synth music that sounds like the singing Triffids from a JG Ballard novel getting amorous with Little Weed from Bill and Ben. In their downtime they hang-out in one of their little brother's bedrooms hamming out mixtapes for the Radar blog comprising all their current fixations. So that'll be: intertia-techno, classic kraut, glo-fi and old Cocteau Twins classics. Full track list and download link below:
