Another week has gone by and we have yet another fun mixtape featuring some amazing new releases to share with you. This time around we have some great debuts as well as some fun covers. Check out new songs from Friendly Fires, Brody Dalle, The Snow and many more artists!
Opening this week's mixtape is a brand new track from SBTRKT (Aaron Jerome) off of the recently released (for streaming) Transitions EP. Check out the highly addictive new tune "Highs and Lows" right here!
RIYL: Autechre, Toro Y Moi
Friendly Fires has kept quiet since 2011, but we're so happy that 2014 is the year for new music from this British indie outfit. Collaborating with The Asphodells (producers Andrew Weatherall and Timothy J Fairplay), this week we were treated to the mellow new song "Before Your Eyes."
RIYL: Washed Out, Cut Copy
Many of us know Boots as one of the collaborators on the latest Beyonce album, but the New York-based producer is definitely proving himself as a solo artist in 2014. With the new track "Howl," there's no denying the artist's talents in songwriting and composition.
RIYL: Genuwine, Miguel, James Blake
Comprised of members from some amazing young indie rock outfits like Wild Nothing, Beach Fossils and Hologram, The Snow is a supergroup to pay attention to. Listen to the new group's first single, "Memory Loss," right here.
RIYL: The Smiths, Real Estate, The Cure
The former frontwoman of the Distillers, Brody Dalle, released her self-explanatory new song "Don't Mess with Me" this week. You really need to hear how amazing this track is!
RIYL: Joan Jett, Haim, The Distillers
Sia is mostly known these days as a songwriter and collaborator for some of the biggest pop songstresses of today including Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Celine Dion, Rihanna, and Christina Aguilera. But we're always excited when she releases solo work and this week's "Chendelier" is a great track to reintroduce the world Sia.
RIYL: Robyn, Lorde, Beyonce
We close this week's mixtape with a hunting new music video from Banks for the song "Brain." This dark number will help keep your faith in the future of pop music.
RIYL: Aaliyah, Lorde, Sia
We try to encourage you to share these mitapes with someone specific, but this week's compilation is a spectrum-spanning collection that will should be shared with everyone you know!
