Friday Mixtape (September 25, 2015)

Throughout the week I keep track of all the new songs that I hear and love and every Friday I put them all here. Most of these songs are brand new, but sometimes I’ll miss a song from before and finally hear it this week.

The Jazz Butcher – “All The Saints”

This song comes from Last of the Gentleman Adventurers, which came out in 2012 but is being reissued this December.

Fire Records @firerecordings

Tommy Stinson – “Breathing Room”

Any member of The Replacements releasing music is great, and it’s even better knowing that Paul Westerberg isn’t the only songwriter of the group.


]Burger Records @BURGERRECORDS

Mile High Club – “Windowpane”

Very excited about this new(ish) moniker of Alexander Brettin. I’m a couple of months late, but this music sounds poppy and wavy like The Zombies.

Stones Throw Records @stonesthrow

Brothertiger – “Out of Touch”

Brooklyn electronic artist is currently touring the USA and will be back in NYC 11/4 at Webster Hall.


Alba – “Operator”

This Australian duo pulls you in with sinister beats and bass and will please any fan of classic house music.


Yung – “Nobody Cares”

A great 2015 guitar song, but don’t worry it’s not emo.

Tough Love Records @ToughLove

Matthew Halsall & The Gondwana Orchestra – “As I Walk (ft. Josephine Oniyama)

You need to start following this Manchester-based trumpeter who’s become a rising star in the UK jazz scene. New album comes out 10/2 via Gondwana Records.



Gaze – “Seedless”

Sounds pretty 90s right? That’s because this song came out in 1997.

PremRock – “Juliet Has Survived (Dr. Quandary Remix)

One of the more interesting-sounding rapper I’ve heard lately. He’s supposedly influenced by people like Tom Waits, Kool G rap, Ernest Hemingway, and Nina Simone, and his mixture of samples will appeal to many different listeners.


Steve Lawson – “The Way Home”

This song opens like an intro to a movie – everything slowly comes in when it needs to and it ends up growing into a compelling recording.



I’m gonna go drink some Oktoberfest. Have a good weekend everyone!
