mixtape // a quiet morning

It’s time for some new music! You can listen to this mix while you’re drinking the first cup of coffee of the day, read the paper, enjoy the last minutes in bed…or anytime actually. It’s quiet, so nobody is screaming at you while you’re still half asleep, but also upbeat to make you excited for the new day. Have fun listening, over here.

1) Oren Lavie – Her Morning Elegance
2) The Paper Kites – Bloom
3) Tanlines – All Of Me
4) Darwin Deez – Radar Detector
5) Passion Pit – Sleepyhead
6) Bon Iver – Towers
7) Ben Howard – Keep Your Head Up
8) Ane Brun – Words

mixtape // summer rain

I don’t know if it’s actually summer where you come from, but over here, it’s been mostly raining the past few weeks. It’s a little sad that we don’t get to spend all our time outside, swimming and having fun (with all those things you associate with a good summer), but it’s also nice to cuddle up inside, eating lots (!) of pie. So if your summer also feels more like autumn without the red leaves, this mixtape is perfect for you. If you’re lying by the pool in the sun right now, I hope you enjoy it as well. You can go listen to it here.

1) Beirut – Santa Fe
2) Justin Vernon – Hazelton
3) The Lumineers – Stubborn Love
4) Garda – Upper/Lower Water Course
5) James Vincent McMorrow – Breaking Hearts
6) Electric Guest – American Daydream
7) The Generationalists – When they fight, they fight
8) Bon Iver – Who is it

PS: Since I love creating mixtapes so much I decided to stop making only monthly ones but instead just create one whenever I feel like it. I hope you enjoy music just as much as I do!

2) The Temper Trap – Love Lost
3) Billie The Vision and The Dancers – Queen of the Dancefloor

First of all, Happy Easter everybody! I hope you spend the time with the people you love, ate tons of chocolate and generally had a good time.

You might know from previous posts that I love attending concerts and this week I got tickets to go see Foster The People in May and Bon Iver in July (on my birthday actually!). My love for Bon Iver isn’t really a secret and I’ve started listening to Foster The People more and more lately  (this session at the Bing Lounge is really good). I’m excited!

Are there any concerts you are looking forward to?

PS: I actually wanted to create this mixtape using 8tracks, but it took ages to get the songs to upload. Have you ever used it before? Did it work?
