Bay-area guitar maestro and multimedia artist Christopher Willits got a tidal wave of positive press following the release of last week's Surf Boundaries, his latest solo album full of ambience, shoegaze jazz and dreamy chords.

Germany-based M.A.N.D.Y.-known to their friends as Patrick Bodmer and Philipp Jung-take the helm for the second installment of Resist music's new compilation series, At The Controls. This is the label's effort to provide fans with a DJ showcase series, not unlike the DJ Kicks and Global Undergrounds of the world. Definitely worth picking up, as M.A.N.D.Y. is never one (two?) who disappoints at the mixing board.
