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.

Video | The Shins – Simple Song

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RoLTPcD1S4Q[/youtube] Check out the new video for the Shins’ single “Simple Song,” which puts an interesting (very Wes Anderson like) narrative albeit dark spin on the single.  It features Mercer dying and giving his kids the home to whomever finds the deed, hidden somewhere inside the home.  I don’t want to ruin, so just give it a watch. The band’s forthcoming Port Of Morrow, which can be pre-ordered now at http://www.theshins.com/shop and is out March 20 on Aural Apothecary/Columbia.
