Wild Horses

i have to thank everyone for all your wonderful emails, comments and tweets in the past month regarding the music mixes. i didn’t realise how much they meant to so many of you (a fact that makes my heart explode in double rainbows) and i’m really happy to know that the playlists encouraged you to go out and buy albums, see concerts and support the artists who you came to love just from hearing a couple of their songs.

so – here it is. a new music mix that’s been one month in the making. thanks for waiting! there are some treats in here for you, including new songs from beirut, best coast, dent may, clap your hands say yeah and the middle east, as well as my favourite track from the new bon iver album. caveman is also an exciting new band who i’m keen to hear more from.

i hope this sets off your weekend on a good note. have a great one.

  9. Oh, this just makes my day – nay – weekend! Thank you, your always perfect mixes have become a staple in the soundtrack of my day.

  10. Oh lady, I (the internet we? the royal we, but through the tubes?) —well, I would never want to force you do to something you didn’t enjoy—but I’m glad you’ve decided to do another mix, because I simply love them.

    It’s like this playlist was created in my dreams.

  23. Miss Moss ,once again you put a smile on my face, always a pleasure listening to your mixes and being introduced to artists , thanks xx

  24. I’ve been receiving rave reviews from my UK-dwelling sister about many of the bands listed here. Thanks!

  25. Heeey, Miss Moss, I was just wondering how you managed to make those album covers. Like, with what programs? I would love to know, they really are great looking!

    Thanks a lot,


  26. I don’t know if I’ve told you yet how grateful I am for you sharing these playlists with us. You’ve exposed me to new artists that I’ve enjoyed sharing with others. I have downloaded I think 5 of your ‘album mixes’ and made a special ‘MissMossMixes’ playlist in my iTunes. Love it. Thanks so much! I especially love the Fine Folk mix. :)

  27. SO EXCITING!! to add my 2 cents to the well-honestly, you make the most amazing music mixes & truly have inspired me to buy loads of albums. so happy these are back!

  28. Thank you so much. Your taste in EVERYTHING is so incredible. The Wild Horses playlist has totally made my week! ♡

  29. Cheers very much for this playlist and of course, for the others you’ve put together. I don’t really get exposed to or excited about much new music these days but thanks to you, I’ve been rekindling my old past-time of whiling away the hours and days with some beautiful new sounds. Really looking forward to hearing some more in the future.

    Thanks again,

    Ruzina in London

    Just started to follow in frauc’s footsteps and keeping a list of all your lists. We recently moved to the middle of nowhere and you’ve kept us sane. Thanks for all your wisdom.

  31. Thank you for making me fall in love with music again. Your mixes are amazing. I don’t know what’s more addictive. Your blog or food?
