P.P.S- If you read the above post and though "Hmm I could totally make a mixtape for this blog" regardless of if you have any musical talent, just look at the side bar above the mixtape section and EMAIL ME! Its not like I'm doing anything more important.

I really came to fall in love with the whole lo-fi pop scene this summer, and I wanted to see what I could come up with. After writing “Let’s Fall Asleep Together”, the last three just sort of happened in the span of a few days.I guess those acoustic versions of his tracks make a bit more sense now. Let's Fall asleep together is one of the four tracks on Teen Daze's new EP Beach Dream. According to theroadgoeseveron the other three tracks will be on his bandcamp next Tuesday.
I know that it’s starting to get cold, and that carefree love songs about beach life may seem out of context, but I hope that you guys can look back on your past summer, and let these songs remind you of some of the good experiences you had!
Bradford Cox has already had a pretty good year. His main gig Deerhunter captured a lot of attention with an intuitive DIY campaign to advertise their new album. And that new Album, Halcyon Digest turned out to be their most accessible, and my opinion their best record yet. Of course, a guy like Cox never really stops making music, so hes releasing a mixtape of unreleased Atlas Sound (his solo project) tracks to close out the year. According to his blog, Bradfod started recorded these songs in August, and apparently didn't finish until today! Download Bedroom Databank Vol 1 from Bradford's blog.

Its only been his birthday for an hour but I'm up so I figure I might as well post David's birFday mix right now. I'm pretty proud of it, I'd say its a bit more accessible than the last few I've made, it even has two rap songs! I gave this one less to time to digest before posting than I usually do but I don't think its any less thought out than usual.

Its been more than 15 minutes since I last posted and I think I'm starting to shake a bit. Its been a pretty busy weekend (in an incredibly fun way) for me here in Tally so that kind of explains the lack of posts. There has not however been of lack of songs worth posting about so I'm going to round up just a few right now. Also, I'm planning on posting a playlist on Thursday instead of Tuesday for my buddy David's birfday.

It sounds like these guys have been listening to Wolf Parade's Apologies to the Queen Mary quite a bit. But I can't honestly hold that against them. I mean if you're going to be heavily influenced by an album you might as well pick one of the greatest Indie albums of all time (in my humble opinion at least). They seem to cut out a bit of the paranoia that I love about Wolf Parade but they replace it with even more energy.

Memoryhouse's new single comes out digitally tomorrow! I don't know what the heck I was doing a month or so ago when the A side, Caregiver made its way into the world but damn do I regret it! So I'm hearing the A and B sides for the first time today. The single seems like a very smart way to end the year. Caregiver and Heirloom sound pretty different, but they both help solidify Memoryhouse's established sound. Caregiver drops the usual synths and focus on the beat to highlight the sense of loss that seems to permeate all of the band's songs. Heirloom on the other hand embraces the electronic sound, and exceeds Memoryhouse's usual down tempo. Heirloom is probably the closest the band comes to "anthemic", but to be honest its a bit too reliant on the retro feel for me. Last but not least, theres an alternate, piano based version of Memoryhouse's classic Lately

but enough about my life, heres some lo-fi surf rock goodness for you:
Summerday is my favorite, really digging Bad News as well. Reel has a real (that wasn't intentional) Modest Mouse vibe to it.

London's Ghost Eyes are currently on tour with Gold Panda (first reason you should be interested!) and bring to mind Wise Blood (second reason you should be interested). Seriously can't stop rocking out to their song Phantom Mountain, its pretty funky and some tribal sounding samples really make it stand out. Stream and Download Phantom Eyes and Stream a few others. Thanks to Yours Truly!

Melodramatic, Moody, British. Gotta love teenage(literally) rockers PEERS. Download 2 demos from them below (while supplies last!) I've got The Pool on repeat at the moment, football is pretty fantastic as well though. Thanks to Illegal Tender for the find.
