Press Play Our final month of the year has officially been closed. This has been a fantastic music year, and I’ve been having a lot of fun putting together these monthly mixes again. It’s great to chronicle a year based on what you’ve been listening to, and we’re so lucky these days to have enough new music each month to put together these. I hope you enjoy some new tunes over your holiday break, and please let me know what I might have missed this month.
Press Play I feel like I’m more stoked about the music on this mixtape than maybe any other month, but when I look back and I see other mixtapes, I think I say the exact thing every month. Regardless, this November dispatch of tunes is fantastic, and I’m super psyched to get it in front of your eyes an in your ears. Enjoy, and as always let me know what I missed!
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.
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.
[D]enver duo Tennis are gearing up to release their highly-anticipated new album, Ritual In Repeat, out September 9th via Communion Records. The first single is the super-summery, amazingly dance-tastic, “Never Work For Free,” a song that simply begs for an 80’s style, John Hughes inspired, dance-off to happen this very second. This will be the band’s third full-length release and if this first single is any indication of what is to come from the indie-pop couple then I seriously need to work on my moves! The band just came off of a sold-out North American tour with the sister power-group Haim and will be back on…
[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o05i-fzwzZc[/youtube] [D]enver’s Tennis recently finished recording their new album and are now preparing to hit the road in May for a string of sold-out shows with HAIM. To celebrate all this greatness the duo have released a fantastic new video for their super-funky song “Cured of Youth,” off the 2013 EP Small Sound. It’s chock full of eighties style and cheesy sci-fi fun, including time travel and a slick red DeLoarean. Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley both receive an A+++++ for their homage to Back to the Future and Quantum Leap, and for the terrific use of Technicolor.
40. Patrick Watson – Adventures in Your Own Backyard – Patrick Watson is gaining steam with lush orchestrated indie-rock / folk songs that seem to float and quiver over this excellent album that was remarkably recorded in the singer’s apartment. There are vast sounds coming from every angle, and Watson uses his voice to fog over these orchestrations creating a huge sound that will delight you from every angle. Check out Into Giants, a very Simon & Garfunkel(y) sound as well as the title track that will spin your head. Listen: Patrick Watson – Into Giants | Buy: Adventures In…
