This weekend we’ll be making our way to Latvia for Positivus, a festival (in a forest no less) that features Under the Radar mainstays like Austra, The Pixies, and alt-j in addition to a whole host of Baltic talent.

One of our perennial favorites, Mew, is also taking the stage at the fest. Ahead of their set, frontman Jonas Bjerre made us a mixtape. (And artwork! Yup—that beauty up there is his doing as well.) It’s filled with some big sounds (See: Jaga Jazzist and Pinkshinyultrablast) and many big ideas (Why hello there Scott Walker). So wrap your ears around the beauty he’s called Cheek to Cheek.

Coming with us to Positivus? High five. Grab any last-minute festival info you might need here.
