Over the course of a week, you might have missed some great new music releases. We have compiled a mixtape for you to catch up on new tracks just in case! Listen to our mixtape right here, including new music from Japanther, Amen Dunes, EMA and many more!
We'll start this week's mixtape off right with Hundred Visions' pounding new track "Thanks for Nothing." The powerful song marks the band's triumphant return with a new 2014 album entitled Spite. Using this first single as an introduction to the band's new sound, we can't wait for more.

Japanther's surprisingly catchy new song, "Take Me In and Let Me Go," had us all tapping our toes this week. The New York punks are definitely on point, making us waiting in anticipation for 2014's Instant Money Magic.
RIYL: Weezer, Rozwell Kid, Oberhofer
New York-based artist Damon McMahon goes by the moniker Amen Dunes, which is shaping into one of the most impressive folk projects of this generation. His new song, "Lilac in Hand," is a great example of Damon's talent with distinct vocals and an acoustic guitar leading the rest of the composition throughout.
RIYL: Jeff Tweedy, Kurt Vile, Bob Dylan
Some great remixes and covers came out this week. Check out Darkside's remix of St. Vincent's "Digital Witness" and Cerrone's remix of HAIM's "If I Could Change Your Mind." Also check out Hot Chip covering William Onyeabor's "Atomic Bomb" and Courtney Barnett's cover of "Being Around" by The Lemonheads.
Sarah P. of the Georgia-based electro-pop outfit Keep Shelly in Athens announced her departure from the promising group to focus on "new things." This week we were treated to her new song from her solo project, Fina Fisken. Check out "Save the Day" right here!
RIYL: Crystal Castles, Keep Shelly in Athens, Grimes
Emerging R&B revivalists are maybe the most exciting artists to watch in 2014 and Gallant is definitely a standout performer on that list. Reminisce about the late 1990s with Gallant's new track "Jupiter Greyscale."
RIYL: How to Dress Well, Miguel, Bon Iver
If you're not listening to EMA you are missing out. The singer's soulful new track, "3Jane," is the closer for this week's mixtape, and it is absolutely mesmerizing.
RIYL: Bat for Lashes, Sia
Share this new mixtape with an older relative or friend that isn't too sure about the future of music. Nostalgia reigns in this compilation and hopes rings out for 2014 and beyond!
