Sometimes they’ve got rap, sometimes they’ve got soul. Sometimes they’re new tracks, sometimes they’re mad old. We’re just talking about our mixtapes, but that’s also a good lead into the first track. Kick back and click for some new Wombats, Tame Impala, Sufjan and more.
“Remember the first time you went to a show and saw your favorite band? You wore their shirt, and sang every word. You didn’t know anything about scene politics, haircuts, or what was cool. All you knew was that this music made you feel different from anyone you shared a locker with. Someone finally understood you. This is what music is about.”
I don’t think any of us are MCR fans, but I have to give props to Gerard Way for that one.
On this month’s mix, you’ll find tracks from by Springtime Carnivore, Fat Tony, Day Wave and even a track we felt self-conscious about including, but said we’re gonna do it anyways. Try to guess which one.
Since 30 is the new 20 and 40 is the new 30, all you can really say is that being young is a state of mind. This mixtape is about what it’s like to be young. The extreme highs and lows and everything in between. Take it away, Ryan!
Bob Marley once said, “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” That may not have been the only reason Bob was feelin’ good, but we do hope our first collection of jams this year does you well. On this month’s mix, you’ll find music by Ivan Ave, Longclaws, The Dreaming Spires and a few other artists we just can’t seem to get enough of. Be sure to let us know which track’s your fave.
p.s. Not seeing a tape above? You’re mobile so you best head here.
Whether you dig the Garfield or Ricky Gervais Monday philosophy, I thought a days of the week mixtape was in order to kick off the first full week of 2015. Here’s a song for every day of the week, double-dipping on the weekend.
