Featuring some surprising choices...

Vessels have handed a brand new mixtape to Clash - stream it below.

Everyone likes a surprise. Expectations turned on their head, preconceptions ripped up and thrown away...

Vessels seem to do that continually. The Leeds post-rock crew are always striving to move ahead, setting then surpassing boundaries in the process.

New EP 'Elliptic' is set to be released on November 25th, and comes equipped with a handful of live shows. Alongside this, Vessels have compiled a mixtape which includes a fresh take on their influences.

It's an intriguing choice. Heavily infused with electronics, it opens with Boards of Canads and contains some familiar touchstones such as Nils Frahm.

Yet there's an awareness of club culture, with a nod towards Daniel Avery and even Azealia Banks before ending with Mano Le Tough.
