MP3: Apache Beat – “PagesDigital Mixtape”
Brooklyn’s Apache Beat were one of last year’s most exciting new arrivals and that was in no small part due to the sheer charisma of Sydney-raised frontwoman, Ilirjana Alushaj.
Ilirjana’s one of those gals which can do it all, you see. She writes and sings incredible avant-pop songs. She co-founded The Pop Manifesto zine. And her effortless fashion sense has been celebrated in Cleo, Oyster, Time Out NY, Jalouse, V, British Vogue and Elle. You know, the usual.
So, no surprise then that she should also boast the ability to make an absorbing, eclectic mixtape. This was on full show when she made an exclusive 1 hour mix for our buds at PagesDigital, featuring a host of fascinating obscurities and personal influences.

Sixteen – Skywave
What Was That Thing – Able Tasmans
Romantic Me – Polyrock
