MIXTAPE MONDAY: Check out new songs from Weatherbox, White Lung, Jess Williamson 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 Jess Williamson, Weatherbox, Sharon Van Etten and more right here!
Weatherbox released Flies in All Directions last week and we're so pumped on each track. Singer-songwriter Brian Warren doesn't hold back on his first release in three years, allowing fans to come back to what made them love this openly honest musician with open arms and ears. Listen to our favorite track off of the 2014 release, "Radio Hive."
RIYL: Mansions, Into It. Over It, American Football
White Lung is one of the most exciting bands today, and the group's newest track, "Face Down," is further proof of this fact.
RIYL: Pretty Girls Make Graves, Metz
Watch the official music video HERE!
We simply can't get enough of the tunes coming from Sharon Van Etten's upcoming album, Are We There, coming out May 27, 2014. "Your Love is Killing Me" is one of those songs that will stick with you for quite some time, allowing you to relate and embrace what it truly means.
RIYL: Cat Power, The Cranberries
"Bastard Tactics" from Coppenhagen punk outfit Lower had us rocking out this week. Taking us back to the world of 1980s punk rock mixing in hooks and dancier numbers while still holding onto the angst, we can't help but absolutely love what Lower is doing these days.
RIYL: The Clash, The Smiths
We hope you're listening to everything Jess Williamson is up to these days, but if you're not as lucky as most we have a great new track to share with you this week. Listen to Williamson's "Snake Song" here!
RIYL: Angel Olsen, Waxahatchee, Chelsea Wolfe
"Hesitation," the latest track from Beat Connection, is one of the most infectious numbers of the year. It's honestly very hard not to dance to this one.
RIYL: Holy Ghost!, Tanlines
Poliça is one of the most exciting electronica outfits of this generation. This week we were treated to a dark, pumping number entitled "Raw Exit," which has us at least attempting to sing along with singer Channy Leaneagh's infectious vocals.
RIYL: Bjork, Purity Ring
The upcoming animated film How to Train Your Dragon 2 has a pretty great soundtrack, at least from the sounds of the contribution from Sigur Rós vocalist Jónsi. Feel uplifted by "Where No One Goes" here!
RIYL: Sigur Rós
This week's compilation of new tracks would be great for a buddy going through a hard time. Sometimes hearing others suffering is a way to relate and react well.
