Mixtape | October 2017

Press Play October was a spooky good month for new music, and I’m psyched for the broad range of music that we’ve got on this playlist. Everything from power pop jams to jangly americana to lo-fi ambling indie rock. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. As always if there’s something I missed, please leave a comment and tell me what it is.

Mixtape | March 2017

Another great month of music, almost too much of it, to keep the format of 40 songs from the month I ended up pulling a few favorites. But there are some great songs in here, and I know I will continue to come back to this mixtape as the year goes along. I’ve had a ton of fun putting this together, and hope you enjoy.

Mixtape | February 2017

February is always a fantastic month for new music. With SXSW right around the corner, it’s a huge driver for new music and this year was another great one. Now that February is over and we are two months down into this year, it’s time once again to get our monthly mixtape into your hands. We’re psyched to hear new songs from Blondie (yes that Blondie), Andrew Combs, Matt Vazquez, the Shins, Foxygen, Father John Misty and tons more. I’ve had a ton of fun putting this together, and hope you enjoy.

New Music | Leif Vollebekk – Elegy

I’ve been an on-and-off fan of Leif Vollebekk ever since his La Blogothèque version of Cairo Blues, (click that link, trust) but between then and now, nothing has grabbed me the way the first single off of his upcoming album Twin Solitude has grabbed me. I simply can not shake this tune from my brain. With his work at times reminiscent of Ryan Adams (one of my all-time favorite singer-songwriters,) I’m always drawn to listen to his work, however, this song—instrumentally at least—seems a bit of a departure for the Canadian troubadour. “Elegy” hits listeners with sparse instrumentation composed mainly…
