Who? Well, you probably know Duncan Lloyd from his day job - guitarist with North East indie types Maximo Park. He's about to unleash a solo LP (Seeing Double, out October 6 via Warp), so we thought we'd invite him to produce a mixtape for us. He complied, and even gave it a title Sounds Like: A Mixtape. Enjoy...
