Mixtape Monday: Too Young to Burn with A Soul Full of Love

This week’s Mixtape Monday mixes some great up and coming bands (Cotton Jones, Field Music, The Dutchess and the Duke, and Robert Francis to name a few) established new acts (The Morning Benders, Josh Rouse, Fleet Foxes) with some old (Elliot Smith) and even older classics (The Beatles, E.L.O., The Four Tops, The Impressions).  As always downloads are encouraged to promote the artists and raise awareness of all the great music out there.

1a.White Water Hymnal (Fleet Foxes) (remix)- Mondo Boys

1b. Bottle Up and Explode (Elliot Smith) (remix)- Mondo Boys
