Transmission #30: A Walk Is More Than a Walk
The ultimate soundtrack for wandering the city and clearing your head, from Cat Power to Actress’ AI-driven Young Paint project.
Wandering around the city while listening to something moody on your headphones can be a great way to check in during a crazy week — and it’s something King Britt does religiously. “In Philly, we can walk anywhere pretty much,” he says. “So not only is it exercise, it’s a visual storybook of my ever-changing city. Sometimes I make mixes of new and old stuff as inspiration for the walk.” For this month’s Transmission, the Philadelphia producer has put together the ultimate walking soundtrack for fans of introspective music, weaving together dreamy vocal cuts from Cat Power, serpentwithfeet and the Cocteau Twins with textural abstractions from Actress’ AI-driven Young Paint project and Berlin-based bassist and producer Jethroe. Take a deep breath, and start walking.
