The ever lovely KIT RECORDS very kindly asked me to make them a music mix. Which I did. 

This is what they said:

" We love the work of English surrealist musician, spoken word artist and beekeeper Dolly Dolly (sometimes known as David Yates). Bunches of words, unnerving tangles of the stupendous, gruesome and mundane, wind through scattered atmospheres, radiophonic ploinks and the occasional piano ballad. David’s mix ties mournful folk and sound experiments together into one mesmerising, scary whole."

This is what I said:

" This mix could quite easily double up as the soundtrack to a 70s children’s television programme or one of those ‘folk’ horror films from the same period. Here Musique Concrete becomes the unlikely bedfellow of pastoral a Capella English folk. The juxtaposition seems to highlight the strangeness of each. For reasons I can’t really explain this mix reminds me of a weird school assembly.
Have a listen and see if you agree."

You can go to the website  and see the tracklisting here or keep it a surprise and listen below:
