Since we just re-launched – I thought it was time for a new mix. Some of you might remember that last year I did a bunch of themed mixes, but this time I’m going to just compile songs that I’ve been digging that go well together. Might be indie songs / possibly one day I’ll feel the need for a dubstep mix / really…anything I think you guys might enjoy that I’ve been enjoying as well.
For this I tried to put a bunch of songs that would make your head bob together. I like how it turned out. Let me know what you think in the Comments section.
Tracklist / info after the jump…
Strange Talk – Climbing Walls
I actually added this song at the last minute. I’ve listened to it before, but right when I was finding songs for this mix and almost done, this song came over Spotify and I thought it would be a great kicker for the year and the mix. It’s got a great beat and keeps movin’ through like a unstoppable train to your ears – that’s why I thought it was a good fit.
The Knocks – Dancing With The DJ
This song was in my DJ pile for a while. It’s got a sweet groove when the song fully comes in and is a good blend of samples, oldies, and electronic elements. I bet you’ll get this song stuck in your head. “We don’t care if the sun comes up – Dancing with the DJ!”
The Big Pink – Hit The Ground (Superman)
I love the drums in this song. That and the chorus of the song is so good.
The Limousines – Internet Killed The Video Star (feat. Tommie Sunshine)
Yay for big bass sounds. No, not dubstep (that’s coming soon) but for now this song will do – with a heavy beat and a catchy melody…it’s the next best thing. Ha. Sort of.
Oh Land – Sun Of A Gun
There was a period in my life where all I listened to was female solo artists / bands. Sia, Kate Earl, Corinne Bailey Rae, Shiny Toy Guns – if Oh Land would have been around then – I would have listened to her a whole heck-of-a-lot. The production in this is great too…if she produced it herself…I want to marry her.
Discopolis – Lofty Ambitions
This is kinda like a chill song with a groovin beat. That’s why I liked it. You’re not sure on whether to chill out and stare up at the stars or get up and dance under them. But really…it works both ways.
YACHT – Shangri-La
If there was ever an ultimate feel-happy mix that would play over the entire world’s speakers to make everyone happy again – this song would be on it. The music and melody is definitely sway back and forth material. Let’s build a Utopia together? Uh, heck yes!
Everything Everything – Photoshop Handsome
I kept adding and deleting this one off and on this mix. I like it, but thats problem, I like it too much I wanted to save it for another mix…but really…I can’t hold on to this one. Jonathan Higgs’ voice is definitely unique, but the music they add around it makes it work together so well.
Royal Bangs – Fireball
When this song kicks in…I mean really kicks in…it does it so well. To me – it’s a song that should be on the soundtrack to my life. Ever see that Family Guy where Peter has music going to his life all the time? Well this song would be mine whenever I walked down a street. The bass is so sexy during the verse and chorus…thats partially why I ended with this song.
