As we celebrate our 15th birthday this month, we’re continuing our tradition of giving you, dear Constant Readers, a very special gift in the form of our annual Compilation Albumavailable to download via our Bandcamp page for free!

Here, we focus on the track contributed by MXYM

Striking the perfect balance between sultry, sleazy, and self-aware: MXYM’s Hard Drive is the soundtrack to every bad decision and regretful rendezvous. Essential listening for alt. weirdos everywhere.

“Hard Drive fell out of my brain in about 10 minutes, like a gift from the seedy cosmos. I was baffled by the concept that anyone would look back at photos of their ex, and that thought spiralled into the seediest of directions – ‘You survive, baby, in my hard drive.’ This song is a banger, and one of my absolute favourites to perform. I’ve found myself revisiting it in the performance-less year we’ve had.”
