We are super excited to have Stef Animal kick off our monthly mix series!

Stef has been a much loved part of both the Dunedin and Wellington music scenes over the years, performing under her solo moniker and as part of shoegaze favourites The Golden Awesome.

Earlier this year Stef released her debut album Top Gear - a playful collection of 15 short tracks each made using a different piece of cheap or unfashionable music gear. The dramatic lo-fi sound of Top Gear is best described in Stef’s own words as evoking “an eighties sci-fi kid’s cartoon soundtrack”, a vibe which definitely carries through into the mix.

Enjoy the mix & check out Top Gear here.
