Heads We Dance Album Influences Mixtape

While browsing my inbox today, I noticed I'd received an email from Heads We Dance. Intrigued, I opened it to find a tracklist of electro delights, old and new. Heads We Dance don't do mixtapes very often, but their Halloween and Sci-Fi mixes were phenomenal, so when one drops in my inbox, I know not to ignore it. And I'm glad I didn't ignore this one. This is what Yoni from the band had to say about the mixtape...

"Here's a mixtape that we've put together as a companion to our new album. It's a collection of songs and artists that inspired us as we were putting the album together. Some inclusions are very obvious (there is a live version of the Kraftwerk song Computer Love, which we covered on our album) - some may be a little more unexpected; perhaps Gabriel Ananda or Tom Tom Club. Anyway, hopefully this will point people in the direction of a few of the artists that we really love!"
