It’s Nice That + NTS Radio’s Black Impulse Playlist

The historic Nelson Mandela anthem, Kirsten Dunst in anime costume, a lot of NTS radio and more in our look at music this week

Our creativity-championing friends over at It’s Nice That have let the folks from Black Impulse on NTS Radio hijack their weekly mixtape—resulting in two hours of music, most of which you’ve probably never heard before. Heather Weil focuses on prog, heavy psych, 1970s and ’80s punk and hardcore. She explains, “These are three really difficult genres to make accessible.” Check out the selection of 30 songs, from King Crimson to Vangelis’ band Aphrodite’s Child to Pelican, and be prepared to spend the whole day head-banging.
