This week's Mixtape Monday features brand new tracks from Slow Club, Chloe Howl, PAWS and many more artists that released some great tunes over the past week. Once again, this is just a great way to share some fun new tracks with friends like we used to do back in the day, but with a digital twist!
Our mixtape this time around opens with a brand new track from PAWS and it is an incredible number that mixes rock n' roll with great hooks. Try not to get "Tongues" stuck in your head!
RIYL: The Men, Metz, Surfer Blood

Fear of Men's fuzzy new dream-pop anthem "Luna" is a great song to get hooked on before the group's debut album Loom comes out on April 8, 2014. Lament and dance along with Fear of Men on this new tune.
RIYL: U2, Beach House, Twin Sister
Slow Club’s newest song “Tears of Joy” is a transformative venture into the world of R&B for this English duo. We’re used to this experimentation from the act known for crossing genres though, and we’re so excited for more like this one!
RIYL: Tennis, Saturday Looks Good to Me
Cloud Nothings has the most anticipated album coming out in 2014, so each new song feels like a blessing for fans. Listen to “Psychic Trauma” right here and get way too excited!
RIYL: Japandroids, Titus Andronicus
We’ve made it to the remix section of this week’s mixtape. Check out new adaptations of great tracks thanks to Moby and Washed Out, Rustie and Machinedrum, and Travis Scott and King Krule!
We move slightly away from these great remixes to the 18-year-old electro-pop sensation Chloe Howl. Her newest song “Boy and Girls” is sure to get you up and dancing, while also getting you excited for her international debut outside of the UK!
RIYL: La Roux, Polica, Tegan and Sara
Maybe one of the most exciting returns to the music world is Saddle Creek’s The Faint, which has been out of the game since 2008. With the electronica’s band newest track, “Help in the Head,” we see a great return to form and a general resurgence of exciting indie dance music!
RIYL: We Are Scientists, Arcade Fire, The Killers
We close out this week’s mixtape with a magnificent cover of Jason Molina’s “Farewell Transmission” by My Morning Jacket. Read more on this cover and the Jason Molina tirbute project here!
RIYL: Songs: Ohio …
This mixtape is great for those trying to get over guessing the wrong Oscar winners. If that isn’t a good fit for your friends, this is a fantastic new mix of great songs for a buddy who’s trying to dance but also needs to calm down with more mellow tunes as well!
