Mixtape 5: The Gold Rush is finished! Download it here.
So I played around with this mix for a long time. It began to develop  when I realized I haven’t included any older songs in my mixes. So I  started by choosing songs from the 60’s and 70’s then found it taking on  this kind of country, folk, twangy kind of sound. I finished it when I  was on vacation in Ocean City and maybe because I was relaxing and  enjoying simpler days I gravitated towards music that felt American or  rootsy. Although not all the artists are American I think it has the  feeling of rural life or old grainy photos in a shoebox. A kind of  vibrant nostalgia… if that makes any sense. Either way I hope you  enjoy it.
Tracklist:
"Zorbing" by Stornoway
"Love Minus Zero/No Limit" by Bob Dylan
"The Mermaid Parade" by Phosphorescent
"Me & You" by She & Him
"Lotta Love" by Neil Young
"Excuses" by The Morning Benders
"Harry and Bess" by Ferraby Lionheart
"I Can’t Reach You" by The Who
"Lost Someone" by Cat Power
"Get Back In Line" by The Kinks
"Chapters" by Sonny & The Sunsets
"Sitting" by Cat Stevens
"From" by Dr. Dog
"Deep Blue" by Arcade Fire
"Sleep All Day" by The Rural Alberta Advantage
"Home" by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros
"Friends" by Ryan Adams & The Cardinals

Ahh, so this is what Arcade Fire meant when they said The Suburbs would have eight covers. I thought it was a stupid sales gimmick when I first heard it. I think it’s really clever because the suburbs are the home of a lot of people who would buy this album. This will just make the album’s relationship with the listener more personal as people will choose what best feels like home to them. Kudos, Arcade Fire!

I just saw on Pitchfork that 2 more Arcade Fire songs from the new album, The Suburbs, are out! You can listen to below on the SoundCloud player. This new song (I’m hearing for the first time) is better than the title track I think, the bass is really awesome (weird I know). These both have a groove that their previous songs haven’t. I liked the direction they went in with Neon Bible (contrary to most people I guess) and I really like this one too. I just wish they would stop teasing me and release the damn thing already.

I just heard via Gorilla vs. Bear that Arcade Fire's new album, The Suburbs, is coming out on August 3rd! Also, now you can stream the title track on their website (lyrics included).
