NTS Episode 3 (29/1/17)

I’ve recently revisited two documentaries which provide a snapshot of early 1980s New York City – Style Wars and 80 Blocks from Tiffany’s. I was thinking about the urban landscape traversed within those films when picking songs for this week’s episode.

I’ve never visited New York, so when I think of the city I often think of its 80s representation: a dystopian megacity covered in trash and broken glass, graffitied subway cars, and Kurt Russell with an eye patch shooting at pirates. Of course I know it’s not like that now, but this was the mental-imagery I was channeling into the mix!

The second half is counterbalanced by an all-Australian sleepy mix from W + W – Wayne & Weidemann.
