MIXTAPE MONDAY: Check Out New Songs From Mogwai, AlunaGeorge, Kittyhawk, Stars 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 Kittyhawk, Stars, Mogwai, AlunaGeorge, The Bulls and more right here!
Opening this week's mixtape is none other than Canadian supergroup Stars. The iconic outfit's newest song, "No One Is Lost," is such a great offering from the band, clearly making the point that they're not going anywhere and will continue to bust out amazing dance numbers.
RIYL: Kisses, How to Dress Well
Kittyhawk is a great band that exudes nostalgic vibes with a contemporary update on Midwestern emo-inspired, female-led outfits of the past and present. Making a great claim on the genre with this week's "Vaudeville," we can assure you that this Chicago-based band will win over plenty of fans this year.
RIYL: Lemuria, The Anniversary, Rainer Maria
Moving right along into another incredible, young female-led rock outfit, Speedy Ortiz this week debuted the new track "Doomsday," proving once again that this is one of the best bands out right now.
RIYL: Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Weezer
Francisco the Man's new song "It's Not Your Fault" is a great example of solid, simple songwriting that involves one of the catchiest hooks. Take a listen and try not to sing along!
RIYL: Dinosaur Jr., Pavement, Surfer Blood
We know these aren't singles or standalone tracks, but you should definitely stream Weezer's new album Everything Will Be Alright in the End, and download Childish Gambino's newest mixtape STN MTN / KAUAI.
Also, check out this great cover of Little Dragon's "After The Rain" by Local Natives!
The Bulls' newest track, "Come Unwound," is one of those songs that makes you second-guess your ability to pinpoint a genre of an artist. Mixing shoegaze, dream pop, doo wop and alternative rock, this new track is amazingly addictive and will make your week so much better with just one listen.
RIYL: Dum Dum Girls, La Sera, Pixies
"Teenage Exorcists" is the newest song from Mogwai, accompanying the announcement of the band's new EP, Music Industry 3. Fitness Industry 1., which is set for release on Dec. 1. Fans of the rockers are sure to enjoy this new, straightforward number, which is clearly another reason why Mogwai is an iconic indie-rock outfit.
RIYL: Pinback, Silversun Pickups
Closing out this week's mixtape is AlunaGeorge's hauntingly addictive new track, "Supernatural." This perfect mix of R&B and modern music technology is a clear example of great composition from a promising new act.
RIYL: Chvrches, Banks
It's starting to get cooler out there, so we believe this new mixtape will help with the process of finding stored away sweaters and coats for the brisk fall. Turn on these tunes and enjoy layering up!
