Springtime Mixtape

I'm SO GLAD that spring has sprung! I was getting caught in a downward spiral for a minute there with all that snow and Radiohead (no knock on Radiohead, just sayin' its easy to forget about the sun,  Sublime, and the possibility of flip flops). I've compiled a spring mix (left out the Rhianna that  I've been listening to while running- you're welcome), with links to audio files and sweet videos. I highly recommend downloading the whole Foals and Holy Ghost! albums. They rule. 

TV on the Radio- No Future Shock*
Avett Brothers- Laundry Room *
Bon Iver- Skinny Love

* denotes super awesome video

Awesome TV on the Radio clip from their film, Nine Types of Light. Its an hour long (the film, not the clip). Next time you have an hour to kill, watch it. You'll be on the edge of your seat and feeling very artsy/cool the whole time. I was :)

The Avett Brothers link above just melts my heart. I heart them. If you liked their Tiny Desk Concert at the NPR offices, Edward Sharpe, Tom Tom Club and Raphael Saadiq also have Tiny Desk Concerts. Great way to waste a morning. Or an afternoon.

Pls share if you are listening to something that tickles your fancy :)
