MIXTAPE MONDAY: Check out new songs from Sondre Lerche, Kult Country, Banks, Strand of Oaks and many more!
Each and every week we try to provide you with a great compilation of brand new songs that debuted within the last few days, creating a mixtape for your sharing pleasure. This time around we had the pleasure of listening to new tracks from Sondre Lerche, Strand of Oaks, Teleman and many more artists that we think you'll enjoy!
British band Teleman dropped a brand new, debut track "Mainline" this week, inviting listeners into a world of pop-centric indie rock. From the sounds of this new tune, 2014 will most likely garner plenty of success for this new band.
RIYL: The Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, The Killers
Misun's infectious new song, "Eli Eli," is all kinds of groovy. As if taken from an episode of Mad Men, there's no way you won't bop around to this track.
RIYL: Tennis, Saturday Looks Good To Me
Singer-songwriter Sondre Lerche is a king in the indie world. This week he announced a new album for 2014 entitled Please and debuted the first single, "Bad Law." We've missed you, Sondre. Thank you so much for this song!
RIYL: POP ETC (The Morning Benders), Phoenix
Strand of Oaks is taking over the music world - that's the truth and we're happy about it. Singer-songwriter Timothy Showalter's despairing compositions are relatable on a tragic level, showcasing intense lows and beaming highs. His new song, "Shut In," is a perfect example of why we're all paying so much attention to him
RIYL: Bruce Springsteen, The National, U2
We know you can never get enough collaborations, so we've compiled some of the best from the last few days. Listen to Bat For Lashes and Beck's new song "Under the Indigo Moon," La Butcherette's "Shame, You're All I've Got" with Shirley Manson, and "Lost You" from Twin Shadow and Zeds Dead.
Although Kult Country has only been around for two years, the British shoegaze outfit makes us believe we've been fans for much longer. Check out this week's release, "Trembling Moon" and thank us in the comments below
RIYL: Dinosaur Jr., A Place To Bury Strangers, My Bloody Valentine
It's not too often we showcase a heavy metal band, but Dead Waves is a force to be reckoned with. "Oracles of the Grave," the band's new release from a few days ago," has us so excited for more Dead Waves in 2014.
RIYL: Nirvana, Big Black
There's no denying that Mixtape Monday has often showcased tracks from BANKS, but can you blame us? This R&B songstress is killing it. Her new song, "Drowning," breaks your heart with every swell of the songstress' sultry voice and each heavy beat within the orchestration.
RIYL: Aaliyah, Ellie Goulding
Welcome the unofficial start of summer by sharing this great new mix with some friends worried about the rising heat. These tracks will either cool them down or just give them something entertaining to focus on!
