Nicolas Laureau aka Don Nino is not only the brilliant freak folker of “In The Backyard of your Mind” released earlier this year but also a gifted noise experimentater. Together with F.Or and Mitch Pires, he has been releasing some of the most innovative experimental rock under the NLF3 moniker. NLF3 ranked alongside bands of the like of Battles or Animal Collective, which make the genre distinction between rock and electronic tremble.
On the occasion of the release of remixes Beats as 12" next week (including Chloe, and Cubenx Turzi) and his concert at Point Ephemere tomorrow (Ticket here), Don Nino gave us a one-hour subjective and timeless selection of what indie-rock and electronic have best to offer (as well as some personal remixes).
