Big Black Delta

Premiere: Big Black Delta Mixtape

Jan 16, 2012

We’re quite taken with “Pleased to Meet You” artist Big Black Delta’s blend of romanticism and ear-shattering electronics. Of course, leadman Jonathan Bates (who live is joined by not one, but two drummers) also has a softer side—as evidenced by this mixtape he sent over to premiere Under the Radar. Judging by the clouds outside our office window, today could be a perfect time to take a listen.

Says Bates about the project; “Rain is rare in Los Angeles, so when the occasion arises, it’s good to have a moody set of songs. These are some of my favorite ones to zone out to. Get your pull.”
