The sun's shining, so who better to usher in the light faeries than William Fowler Collins?

It’s hard to believe this is only William’s first mix for Type, and I can’t give a reasonable explanation why that is. While he might be best known for his doomy, blackened soundscapes, his taste varies far more than he’s given credit for, as this wide-reaching collection of surreal gems attests. Really, there’s no better way to spend your hot spring/summer days than listening to these peculiar sounds…
