New mashup – Liability Shade (Lorde vs Procol Harum)

Instamatic Liability Shade (Lorde vs Procol Harum) mashup cover

Mashups are like buses, you wait years then they all get cancelled and you give up. Sorry, two come at once, that’s the saying, right? 🙂 After DJNoNo’s very silly Unhappy Hardcore EP, you have this downtempo number which inspired this Not-Going-To-Finish-This-So-Here-It-Is dump because it came around randomly and I was ‘that’s not bad!’. Which is always a surprise to me.

It’s Procol Harum’s A Whiter Shade of Pale vs Lorde’s Liability (including the reprise, which is slower which caused all kinds of issues) which was fresh and new then, but this was created in February last year (!). I do sometimes create mashups but rarely feel the need to spend days polishing them. This is a bit rough but I think it has a good mood and fits well and the bits that don’t ‘the kids will never know’ or they aren’t massively wrong….not really selling it am I? Have a listen and see what you think – When Lorde Went Psych!

I discovered this old Northern Soul gem on ‘Shoot the Piano Player’ records down the charity shop – who knew that Marvin Gaye and Mayer Hawthorne ripped this poor guy off? I ripped it from the original 7″ in glorious original mono just for y’all.

P.S. might actually be something to do with the GYBO Weekend Challenge 😉
