Paul Mortimer is, undeniably, one of Toronto’s busiest music men. His new folk band, Deloro, recently put out a new (winter-centric) record , and he just got off tour with his other band One Hundred Dollars. He’s also quite considerate, creating, with Godspeed, the first psych-rock mixtape the Standard’s ever received.
Paul’s inspiration for the mix?
“It’s more or less the greatest known/unknown hits from records I was listening to on the tour I just finished with One Hundred Dollars – total long drive hash jams. I’m mostly into psych garage and country right now and finding non-traditional weird country rock and pop stuff that maybe didn’t seem that weird at the time it was produced, but in retrospect is totally weird. That and a lot of early Dead.”
