[Mixtape Monday] Dealing with all that pre-festival adrenalin


Counting down to Urbanscapes 2013, let us take you through the top tunes you can expect this weekend, on 23 and 24 November.

TDCC, Efterklang, Franz Ferdinand and Mew are just to name some of the indie giants that will be gracing Malaysia’s largest and longest-running outdoor creative festival.

We’re also in the business of busting any doubt that Asian born and bred bands such as Kyoto Protocol, Bihzhu, In Each Hand A Cutlass and The Venopian Solitude will blow your mind. We’ll back off and let their songs do the talking.
