Winter Wanderlust mix

To keep you both warm and cool as winter sets in, AP asked the dapper Dan Lewis, head honcho at indie label Special Award Records to put together a smooth selection for your listening pleasure. A ‘socialite-lite’, erstwhile tour promoter, internet radio host, and DJ, Dan Lewis has done (some of) it all. With musical tastes as vast and varied as the seas, you never really know what you’ll get.

Dan’s label Special Award captures some of the broad spectrum of his own listening tastes: from psychedelia to indie pop, folk to soft rock, easy listening to goth. Says Dan: “look out for Prudence Rees-Lee’s opus ‘Court Music From The Planet Of Love’ (out now) and future releases from Drown Under and Hex On The Beach coming soon”. Also, if in Melbourne, you may catch him of an evening at one of his many record-playing haunts around town.

When at home, Dan likes to eat pancakes and do soothing Google image searches for Rick James and Linda Blair. With this vision in mind, sit back, relax and enjoy this all-vinyl selection from Dan’s ‘private collection’…
