Ray LaMontagne - “Be Here Now” (Live on BBC Four Sessions)

For Maura.

Happy… Tuesday? Haha, whoops. Looks like the new year’s Mixtape Mondays are already all over the place. Anyway, hope the tunes on this week’s mix are worth the wait! Mostly older stuff, except “Civilian” which is from the upcoming Wye Oak record.

The photo was taken on the way back to LA from San Diego this past weekend. Driving is nice, but next time I’m gonna look into how long a train ride would be. (And no, I didn’t take the photo whilst driving. My brother was driving and I was testing out some photo apps I have on my phone: Andigraf and Instagram)

Happy Monday! Lots of oddly danceable tracks on this week’s mix! I included 3 of my new favorite songs: the RAC mix of Edward Sharpe’s “Janglin”, “Young Blood” by The Naked and Famous, and the ubiquitous “Fuck You” by Cee-Lo.

For everyone wondering, the photo was taken in (surprise, surprise) Downtown LA! Next week I will endeavor to take a picture that’s not in Downtown.

Ray LaMontagne

Ray LaMontagne’s new album came out this week. If you don’t have it already, you should probably pick it up. And if you’re not familiar with his music, you should probably start by heading to his MySpace page.

Currently you can pick up a physical copy of the record on Amazon for $8! That’s cheaper than what they’re selling the mp3 downloads for! ($10). Click-through for the Amazon link.

Ray LaMontagne - “Can I Stay”
——-
So can I stay here with you, till the day breaks?
There’s something you should know, I ain’t got no place to go
So can I stay here with you, till the day breaks?
How happy it would make me to see your face when I wake.

Ray LaMontagne - “You Are The Best Thing”
——-
The way you move me, it’s crazy
It’s like you see right through me
And make it easier
Believe me, you don’t even have to try
