Get ready for another thrilling Mixtape Monday presentation. This time around I have a lot of goodies ranging from new indie acts to some great collaborations and some little known older stuff. As always the stuff on the site is free and available for download (just a right click and save target/ link as) but if you enjoy the music, please support the artists involved. The full mix after the jump.
Smell that, smells like freedom, that’s right I’m finally free from the yoke of college (for the summer at least) so thanks y’all for the patience on this mixtape but the finals were calling and I couldn’t have them leave a message. I’m excited for this one to drop ladies and gentleman, high hitting, in the pocket funky grooves and outstanding performances, new and old and definitely fresh.
A new one for you all, this is a light hearted good jams kind of mix
Suave meets power rock, awesome combination
This is a super group of Jim James, M. Ward, and Conor Oberst, Say Please is a Beatlesque tune, the guitar solo is a nice touch
Nice bouncy groove on this one, fans of Modest Mouse will like this one
One of the prettiest acoustic melodies you will ever hear, if gold had a sound it would be this
Great melody and drumming on this one and the singing is in fine form too
Just a nice light-hearted acoustic tune, nice touches with the organ
I could swear Tupac was on this, great sample, great flow
It’s like E.L.O. and Billy Joel decided to have a musical baby and this was the result, catchy melody, great vocal performance and great bridge
Most of the time, Beatles covers are like heresy in my book, but the laconic way he delivers the lyrics brings the song to a different place, dreamy and wistful, perfectly conveying the feeling Harrison was getting at by not being sure.
Great vocal performance, great arrangement, a new band that more people should know about
London Calling is a fantastic album for a number of songs, and this is one of the best, fantastic arrangement, snide vocals, a powerful song through and through
Just a sunny day tune, a happy song, good backing harmonies and easy going arrangement
Tight harmonies with a wild arrangement
Great homage to beach boys/ motown girl group style, this song is amazingly catchy and it is hard to believe it was recorded this year
Oasis meets Dispatch, these guys have a great sense of dynamics and melody and they’re a pleasure to listen to
This song could easily have been straight out of the CSN &Y songbook, great acoustics and singing performance
Very nicely done arrangement on this one
The Beach Boys 2.0, catchy, strong harmonies and a summer melody
Similar to House of the Rising Sun but good in its own right
Great upbeat country arrangement and Dean Martin shows his considerable vocal chops on this one, this is a hard melody to get off your mind.
