Podcast 90: Daydreaming with The Long Lost

Alfred and Laura Darlington released their first album under The Long Lost guise earlier this year, surprising the music world with dreamy, orchestral pop songs that strayed from the experimental beats we're used to hearing from Alfred (under his Daedelus moniker). For the latest installment of the XLR8R podcast, the two continue surprising us, with 28 tracks of indie-pop, folk, and ambient compositions from the likes of Jogger, Caribou, Lali Puna, and Fleet Foxes. It's a mix bound to brighten anyone's day.
