Mixtape: June


June Mixtape · via Spotify

I know I featured Lana Del Rey in last month's mixtape, but with her new album just out I couldn't help but include her on this month's one too. I loveee herrrrr. I want to beeee herrrrr. The whole album is pretty dreamy and I think Money Power Glory might be my favourite track. I'm surprised the neighbours haven't yet complained about me singing (ahem, screeching) the GLORRRRYYYYYY part to myself several times a day for the past week.

The new First Aid Kit album came out recently too, and it's well worth a listen if you like singer-songwriter/acoustic/folksy sort of music. I've also just discovered First Aid Kit have recorded a few songs on an album with Conor Oberst (of the teenage melancholy dream that is Bright Eyes) so I'm off to give that a listen as soon as I've finished writing this post - expect to see that in next month's mixtape!

The rest are either old favourite or songs I've heard on the soundtracks of films/TV shows. Those two categories seem to by my main way of choosing what music to listen to these days!

Twin Atlantic · Heart and Soul
First Aid Kit · Silver Lining
Pretenders · Brass in Pocket
Lana Del Rey · Money Power Glory
Jimi Hendrix · All Along the Watchtower
Dios (Malos) · You Got Me All Wrong
Tears For Fears · Head Over Heels
Kat Edmonson · Lucky
Garbage · It's All Over But the Crying
Adele · Someone Like You
