MIXTAPE MONDAY: Check out new songs from The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Angel Olsen, Iceage and many more!
Each and every week we put together our favorite tracks that had premiered a few days prior into one magnificent mixtape to share with you and your friends. This time around we've decided to share new songs from The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Angel Olsen, Iceage, Cherry Glazerr and more right here!
What's there not to absolutely love about Cherry Glazerr? Mixing modern vibes with a retro sound, this California garage rock outfit holds nothing back with this week's "Had Ten Dollaz."
RIYL: The Kills, Speedy Ortiz
Iceage's messy new single, "How Many," mixes '80s lovelorn pop tunes with modern punk-infused angst. The layers developed throughout the song make us recognize the talent and the song itself is just one that you can't help but get sucked into.
RIYL: Pity Sex, Cloud Nothings,
Canadian singer-songwriter and producer Lydia Ainsworth is ready to make a name for herself in the music world, and her latest offering, "Hologram," proves that she's a spectacle to behold. This electronica number shows just how elaborate Ainsworth can get in terms of composition and writing.
RIYL: Sia, Frou Frou
With the great debuts of new songs each week comes some updated versions and remixes of older tunes. Check out James Blake's remix OutKast's "International Players Anthem;" Disclosure, Sam Smith, and ScHoolboy Q remixed "Latch" this week; Also, The Juan MacLean remixed Sharon Van Etten's "Our Love."
Just to attempt to keep things bright, here's "Poison Touch" by Brooklyn Indie-pop outfit The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. Jumping right into the world of pop, and admittedly taking queues from Taylor Swift, this song could become one of the biggest hits of the year.
RIYL: Ace of Base, Taylor Swift
"Bright Eyes" is the latest example of why we need to pay attention to Allo Darlin'. This simple indie pop duet shows us that the London/Australia outfit has a winning formula that is sure to garner plenty of fans over its tenure as a band.
RIYL: The Cure, Belle & Sebastian
The Rural Alberta Advantage should definitely be bigger than they are. The folk-indie rockers from Canada made incredible music, and this weeks "Runners in the Night" is a perfect example of the band's talents.
RIYL: Wilco, Dr. Dog

There's no use hiding our love for Angel Olsen. Although she already made her mark earlier this year by releasing one of 2014's best records, Burn Your Fire For No Witness, her most recent release, "All Right Now," shows fans that she's not slowing down any time soon. This quiet number showcases her ability to hold back musically, while still impressing vocally and lyrically.
RIYL: Sharon Van Etten, Haley Bonar
This week's mix is a bit more of a downer, so make sure you give it to your "handle with care" pal. You know whom we're talking about.
