Labyrinth Ear x Hard Candy: Magnolia

Hard Candy favorites Labyrinth Ear are the latest act we have tapped to create a mixtape exclusively for our series. It is our pleasure to present to you the ‘Magnolia‘ mixtape that expertly fuses together some of the band’s favorite tracks of all time and some newer stuff that they are currently listening to. They’ve got everything in there from The Carpenters to Sonic Youth and M83… Say what?! Somehow this eclectic mix really works!

Labyrinth Ear had this to say about creating the mixtape…

“This mixtape is a culmination of everything we’ve been listening to currently. It’s a mixture of different genres and eras and styles, but I think somehow the mixture shares some similar qualities in the overall feel of the music. There’s some 90s hip hop, some classical, some chamber pop, some bangra, overall it’s a good representation of both of our tastes combined. We hope that you enjoy the mix as much as we did making it, and find it entertaining
