Mixtape Monday: What I am Listening to and Why

Not all of these are new, but this what I am currently into:

1. Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) - Arcade Fire (a very catchy tune)

2. In Your Eyes - Kate Boy (Their EP comes out tomorrow and I highly recommend purchasing it, if you know what's best for you.)

3. Diamonds - Rihanna (I have mixed feelings towards Rihanna - musically and personally - but every now and then she releases a gem that I cant get enough of. This is one of them. Sia wrote this song, and I think she even delivers it better than RihRih.)

4. Better Off - Haim (This sister trio is my new favorite thing on this planet. I cannot wait for a full-length album.)

5. The John Wayne - Little Green Cars (for fans of: Snow Patrol and The New Pornographers)

6. Blue Velvet - Lana Del Rey (Born to Die - The Paradise Edition is my favorite guilty pleasure.)

7. Know How - Kings of Convenience (Feist makes an appearance in this song. That's all you need to know.)

8. Time to Run - Lord Huron (Lord Huron seems like he is going to be the next big thing - indie music wise. He is a perfect blend of Bon Iver and Deer Tick, if you can imagine that.)

9. Let Me Lie - Trey Anastasio (for fans of: Ben Lee and Ben Folds)

10. Art Isn't Real (City of Sin) - Deer Tick (I love the lead singer's unapologetic raspy, gargling southern voice.)

Listen to them all:


  1. I absolutely LOVE Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains). Listen to the Mainstream Indie playlist on songza. I think you'd like it.

  2. Thanks for the recommendations! I pretty much share your taste in music so I love getting new songs and bands from your mixtape mondays :)

  3. yayyy! more new music.. PS when are you thinking about your chi town move??
