This week's RNZ Mixtape selectors Broods share their favourite songs. Brother and sister Caleb and Georgia Nott talk about their musical family and unreal Los Angeles life with Yadana Saw.  Please note that this interview was recorded before the Nelson fires and last week's terrorist attack in Christchurch. Their March tour dates have now been moved to May. They're playing in Christchurch on the 14th and Auckland on the 16th. On Thursday night they played their "thank you fire, emergency and first responders" concert in Nelson and playing at the Homegrown festival in Wellington.
