Mixtape Monday: What I am Listening to and Why

This is a mixtape of songs that I have been listening to as of late:

1. Get Better - Mates of State

2. Switched On - Islands (Vampire Weekend-esque)
3. Something Good Can Work - Two Door Cinema Club (sounds good paired with #2)
4. Enzymes - Freelance Whales (This whole school year I have been really into Freelance Whales. Get a free download of the song here and see the video for it below!)
5. Poison & Wine - The Civil Wars (This boy/girl duo are the Nashville version of The Swell Season. Cannot everyone relate to lyrics like "I don't love you, but I always will"? They're heartbreakers.)
6. Tip of My Tongue - The Civil Wars
7. Four Winds - Bright Eyes (pair with #5 & 6)
8. Illgres - Sigur Ros
9. North by North - Faded Paper Figures (if you like The Postal Service, you will love this song)
10. The Ghost Inside - Broken Bells (best song from the album)


  1. The Ghost Inside wows me every time,Broken Bells is so atmospheric

    Btw, because you love Vampire Weekend so much I think you might like a Chicago band called The Smith Westerns. They remind me 1960s pop, VW, and other delightful sounds.

  2. clearly i need to get on poison & wine. <3<3 nashville love!

    thanks for sharing, lauren!
