Discover ’90s Eastern European Shoegaze With This Mix By Lithuanian Crew Secret Thirteen

Plus some blissful punk-influenced experiments to help thaw the winter chill.

Few collectives have the musical breadth of the Lithuanian music publication Secret Thirteen. In case you need a reminder, you might want to check out the awesome audio collage the crew compiled for Electronic Beats, which includes 50 awesome experimental-leaning tracks that laid waste to genre or musical period.

But alongside continuing to host one of the most consistent and interesting mix series around, S13 also host a radio show. Broadcast on Berlin’s Cashmere Radio, Secret Communications is a treasure trove for exciting music from all eras, epochs and regions.

While the last few shows have been loosely focused on the synthetic aesthetics of post-techno and rave scenes, in episode three, the Secret Thirteen crew dove into depraved guitar experiments as well as blissful ’90s shoegaze from Eastern Europe. With a healthy mix of no wave, post-punk and some contemporary Russian cuts thrown in for good measure, it’s another perfect 90 minute wonder around music’s obscure fringes.
