Potpourri platter

Telepathe

Back in high school, this Bus had a teacher who would refer to any combination of non-like things (ideas, materials, clothes, whatever) as a potpourri platter. Okay. Sure. Why not?

A modern-day equivalent of said potpourri platter is the sort of newish mixtape put together by Brooklyn glitter hop kids Telepathe. Yes, they’re good at their own music (see the video below), and it turns out they can also pick other folks’ good music out as well – regardless of genre. Check out their SXSW mixtape (why it’s SXSW I can’t tell you). Anybody who throws Bone Thugs, the Chills, Juvenile, J Dilla and Lisa Lisa and the Cult Jam into one mixing pot gets our respect.
