Your Thursday Mixtape: Vol IX

22 Jul

Finally some new Cut Copy! This is the first single off their new CD coming out next January. As noted on a blog I read, someone sure listened to the Beach Boys a lot this summer…But those “Ooo’s” will get ya! [Buy Here]

Cut Copy – Where I’m Going

Bei Maejor has been producing songs for a while now (Sean Kingston, Ne-Yo, etc), and finally has his own CD dropping this fall. This song makes me want to get my game on – while singing? [Buy Here]

Bei Maejor – Gamez (Ft. Keri Hilson)

S-Preme uses a sample (copied from Kanye in this video, which was copied from Kristen Chenoweth in “Wicked”), and as an up and coming rapper from Chi-Town, his mixtapes have been creating some buzz for a while now. [Buy Here]

S-Preme – Popular

Even more mp3’s after the jump!

Hailing from Raleigh, NC – Troop 41, who are apparently huge down there, inspired by John Wall flexing, might have just created the new anthem for the Washington Wizards. DO THE JOHN — WALL!

Troop 41 – Do the John Wall

Ladies and gentlemen, Rooney has returned. You might remember them from being featured on pretty much every single episode of the hit tv show “The OC” – well their new single is out and it will have your head bobbing and thinking of summer. (Thanks Katie H.) [Buy Here]

Rooney – I Can’t Get Enough

Florence and the Machine have been around for a while – but it seems to be popping up in just about every commercial and trailer these days. No wonder why, this is a song that will get you out of your seat. (shout out to Becky for knowing this song back in 2009) [Buy Here]

Florence and the Machine – Dog Days Are Over

Yet another producer turned singer/rapper is Mike Posner (grad from Duke, boo). While we featured his single “Cooler Than Me” a while back – this track is pretty much the same, copy the 80’s and see what happens. But it’s still pretty catchy… [Buy Here]

Mike Posner – Please Don’t Go

Sky Ferreira is an 18 year old from LA who is trying to get into the cool beat/voice manipulation field it seems. While the song is pretty simple…it’s not awful (embarrassed face). [Buy Here]

Sky Ferreira – One

Discovery is a sort of side project of 2 guys, Rostam Batmanglij the keyboardist from Vampire Weekend and Wes Miles the vocalist from Ra Ra Riot (who have been friends for a while). They create poppy/dance/cool beats together and often bring in other singers. If you haven’t yet – their album is a must listen, you’ll either love it or completely hate it. [Buy Here]

Discovery – So Insane

Mashup of the Week:

Magical World ft. Nelly Furtado

Throwback Jam of the Week: Try not and wish you lived in a different decade during this.

Glenn Miller – In the Mood

Please support these artists!

    Sky Ferreira’s video for One is really cool too.
