Influence is largely the theme of the majority of mixtape number two for this week. Teen Daze kicks things off with an Earth, Wind & Fire sampling dance party. Speaking of influence, does the piano fueled opening of Miike Snow’s “Devil’s Work” remind anyone else of Van Halen’s “Right Now”? I swear I just flashbacked to middle school. Charming female songstresses Alex Winston and Oh Land cover The Black Keys and The National, respectively. Even Mayer Hawthorne and Electric Guest offer up soul and Motown related gems. Elsewhere, The National demo a new track that sounds, well, like The National. We welcome back The Shins, which sound like the old Shins, but aren’t really the old Shins. Lastly, I have to say, I’m really enjoying the blues rock inspired sound of Cold War Kids new demos. I’m certainly intrigued by the addition of a new lead guitarist in Modest Mouse’s Dann Gallucci.

    Still digesting the first mixtape from this week (heavily weighted by the F&tM cover that I have been whacking on my hype machine playlist for a couple of weeks). Anyway, I was hoping you could give me a rundown on vinyl quality versus digital music. I personally dont hear that much missing from my digital collection, but I internally wonder how much this is from my not having the right equipment, and my not having the audiophile ears that are required. If its not worth a post, feel free to send me an email.

    By the way, Teen Daze – what an excellent way to start off a mixtape. It almost gives me a little Friendly Fires vibe circa 2009. Jump In the Pool.

    Van Halen’s “Right Now”? I swear I just flashbacked to middle school.

    Wow… way to make a brother feel old 🙂
