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 LVL UP, Pity Sex, Bass Drum of Death and more right here!
From the sounds of the new song "For Blood," Bass Drum of Death is looking to take over the world in 2014. This loud, punk-infused rocker will inspire you to get out of your office chair and bang your head today!
RIYL: The Hives, Iggy Pop, Cloud Nothings
Philadelphia's indie-rock outfit Little Big League is definitely proving itself to be a great band to watch these days. Debuting a new song this week entitled "Tropical Jinx," songwriter Michelle Zauner proves to fans that she's not afraid to change up her sound and definitely willing to lay everything out for us in just under two minutes of music.
RIYL: Speedy Ortiz, Braid, Eternal Summers
Songstress EMA ventures into the world of punk rock with her new track, "False Flag." This rough, distorted song shows us that the singer can show her emotions in different ways - this time she's yelling!
RIYL: Big Eyes, METZ
Donald Glover released a new track for his Childish Gambino musical project, entitled "Sober." Though he labeled the song as a "rough" mix, the tune is definitely an impressive addition for his upcoming mixtape, STN MTN / KAUAI.
RIYL: Washed Out, Frank Ocean
With the great debuts of new songs each week comes some updated versions and covers of old tunes. Check out Daphni remixing Caribou's "Our Love," Mac DeMarco's cover of Burt Bacharach's "This Guy's In Love With You," and Cold Specks' cover of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds' "We No Who U R."
"Acid Reflex" is the perfect title for Pity Sex's latest song. The indie-shoegazers from Ann Arbor are making a statement with this fuzzy number, showing no signs of slowing down after an impressive release last year.
RIYL: The Pains of being Pure at Heart, Tigers Jaw, Dinosaur Jr.
LVL Up is a great band that brings lo-fi rock to new levels. This week's "Ski Vacation" is a great example of simple-yet-impressive songwriting that is sure to make plenty of new fans turns their heads.
RIYL: It's A King Thing, Spook Houses
We conclude this week's Mixtape Monday with The Glazzies and their new track, "Spill." Reminiscent of the post-grunge punk sound of the late '90s, this week's closing song takes us back to music's angsty era, and we're definitely happy about that!
RIYL: The Offspring, Nirvana, Green Day
Share this new mix with one of your glum buddies, that can't get out of the house now that the temperature's dropping.
