A Songdrop Mix Tape | July 2014

Just like this time one month ago, I've picked 5 songs each from YoutubeSoundcloud, & Bandcamp gems and assembled them all in an order that sounds good to these ears in the player below (or if you prefer, you can jump over on Songdrop, or you can even download the Songdrop app and listen on that little computer in your pocket that you use to screen phone calls from your mom).

So press play on (probably) my favourite track off the excellent Baker EP I blogged about last week and then don't go looking for anything else to listen to until Geotic lets your hand go (and in between those you'll hear: new tracks from Field Report, Jamie T, LAPD, Perfume Genius, Foxes In Fiction, Michael Rault + recent discoveries like Bryant Eugene Vazquez, Palace, Boat, Caroline Says + Chet Faker and a million friends doing a kick ass cover + even more).

And while you're listening, remember to remember: music makes all our lives a bit more bearable, but the continued making of that music requires all of us listeners to give a little love back (whether that be by buying the artist a metaphorical pint, turning your friends on to them, or even just letting the artist know you dig… anything beyond secret appreciation goes a long way).
