Looking for Jeannie Piersol: High Pitched Vocal Mix – “I’m going on the road again which means a lot of wear n tear on my vocal chords. I made this high pitched vocal mix as an aspirational tool since my top range as a singer pretty much shits the beds after a couple weeks of smoking and boozing. There are some obvious choices here like the Bee Gees and Frankie Valli, but my personal favorites are Dagmar Krause of Slapp Happy who gets two songs cause she’s that damn good, Trish Keenan of Broadcast, The Specials as in the Doo Wop act, not the ska band, Junior Murvin and of course Jeannie Piersol’s The Nest which inspired this mix in the first place. Warning: there are some other worldly frequencies on this mix so you may need earplugs but only if you are that kind of square”.
Raund Haus x Moogfest – artist collective from North Carolina presents a mix compiled by their co-founder Hubbble
