august mixtape volume 7

hey there! can you believe it's already august? where did the summer go?!?

i haven't made one of these mixtapes in a long time! however, i was feeling very inspired by my recent trip to california when choosing what songs i was in the mood for. my friend joe and i listened to a ton of country music in the car while i was there, so i created this mixtape that reminds me of the good ol' summer days, with lots of good guitar riffs, banjos and folksy sounds. not all of it is new music, but they're the good tunes i know i can always rely on...

1. iron & wine- peace beneath the city
2. fleet foxes- sim sala bim
3. bon iver- towers
4. thao & mirah- little cup
5. m. ward- never had nobody like you
6. soggy bottom boys- i am a man of constant sorrow
7. she & him- you really gotta hold on
8. the black keys- she's long gone
9. the decemberists- rox in the box
10. the felice brothers- radio song

the album artwork is a film photo that matthew took one day when we were at the beach. it's so washed out but i love how summery it feels.

so check it out and follow the simple instructions! download and play on repeat in the car with the windows down :)

happy summer!
