Fleet Foxes - “Can’t Help Falling In Love With You” (Elvis Presley cover)

Reblogged from Moderation

Robin Pecknold - “Olivia, In A Separate Bed”

Gorgeous, haunting new demo by Robin Pecknold.

Sorry for the delay in the mix this week (and for the wait since the last one). This week’s playlist is kind of a mixed bag — some new, some old, some right in between. Including a brand new track from Priscilla Ahn’s upcoming record, “When You Grow Up”. Also a few tracks by some folks I’m hoping to catch in Austin (really loving that Bahamas song, and also the Bear Driver track!) Let me know what you think.

It’s officially spring here in Los Angeles, and I’m loving every sunny minute. Took this picture a couple days ago. (If you follow me on Instagram, it may look familiar.)

Fleet Foxes - “Helplessness Blues”
——-
NEW FLEET FOXES!!

Sub Pop just uploaded the track on their SoundCloud account. You can download it there as well! (http://soundcloud.com/subpop/fleet-foxes-helplessness-blues)

And now after some thinking,
I’d say I’d rather be a functioning cog
In some great machinery
Serving something beyond me.
But I don’t know what that will be
I’ll get back to you someday soon, you will see.

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! I took the photo above on Sunday, when my friend and I were driving across the Sixth Street Bridge in LA. (Err, technically I think it’s called the Sixth Street Viaduct?) Anyway, to be completely honest I think it’s a beautiful little bridge and sort of a lovely surprise to folks driving around that part of downtown. Unfortunately the concrete in the bridge has been subject to a chemical reaction, known as Alkai Silica Reaction (ASR) causing significant deterioration of the structure.
