“A good compilation tape, like breaking up, is hard to do” wrote mixtape maestro Nick Hornby. “You’ve got to kick off with a corker.” Romy from the XX does just that on her compilation for The Pop Manifesto, beginning with a Bjork number and taking it up a notch with Radiohead, Goldfrapp, Massive Attack and Cat Power. Lots of slow beats and lady vocals make for perfect late night listening. Download it here.
