Jens Lekman: SC Archival Sleuth

Bild 238A belated “Rabbit Rabbit” on this 2nd day of November, friends. Jens sent an email last night informing us that while examining the “thousands of records, tapes, and movies” at a friend’s house, and risking dusty or chapped hands, he stumbled upon one of the rarest Secretly Canadian gems.

Pictured above is a Secretly Canadian mixtape titled “St. Ives” (after the film starring Charles Bronson and later the namesake for St. Ives Records) released when people had tape players. Or at least we think so. We’re not exactly sure when it came out, the tracklist, or even The Curator. We’re almost certain it was for an Australian magazine, which explains Jens’ unearthing in Melbourne. All we’re really sure about is that it makes ideal fodder for a future EXTRA CLASSIC.
