T.G.I.Mixtape 148
  • FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2012

  • Posted by: Joe Puglisi

As we prepare our American flags and beer for Washington's birthday on Monday, our thoughts are gently turning towards SXSW-- whose BUZZine will reign supreme?? What kind of parties are the big dogs cooking up? What should I put on my breakfast taco? We've got our own event in the works, which we'll have more details on in the coming weeks, but for now, enjoy a bunch of bands we think could be making a splash in the spring.

1. "Breaking The Yearlings" - Shearwater - Animal Joy

This is not your grandma's Shearwater. The new LP is out now.

2. "This Head I Hold" - Electric Guest - This Head I Hold

Danger Mouse produced this track. You can hear the sizzle. This is one of those dance-even-if-you-don't-want-to kind of tracks.

3. "Heavy Metal" - White Rabbits - Milk Famous

White Rabbits kind of remind me of what Radiohead would be like if they were a more normal, funky-focused rock band. Milk Famous continues that tradition.

4. "Machine Gun Silhouette" - Jack White - Blunderbuss

This is going to be really good. Jack White's first solo effort, following The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather, and producing a million other things you love. Be prepared.

5. "Dancing In Houston" - Zooash - Unreleased

The internet mashup that swept the web this week, a crumbelievable combination of Whitney's amazing voice and Robyn's awesome "Dancing" track. It's amazing how well they work together.

6. "The Fear" - Ben Howard - Every Kingdom

This singer/songwriter crept up on us. He's a part of Ben Lovett's (Mumford and Sons) Communion project.

7. "Petition" - Tennis - Young and Old

We've hocked Tennis before. Their album came out this week. Go get it. This is a petition.

8. "Friend Crush" - Friends - Friend Crush

Who are Friends? The Bushwick band has only got a couple of singles out, but each one is scratchy and quaint and wonderful. We can't wait to hear a little more of that vinyl-y goodness.

9. "Off The Wall" - Yuksek - Living On The Edge Of Time

This is one of those "saw-it-a-million-times-in-my-email-and-finally-spotified-it" bands, but wow, glad I did. Their Apples In Stereo-esque glitzy, future-rock is just delightful.

10. "Give Out" - Sharon Van Etten - Tramp

Sharon Van Etten has really come into her own with this collection of sparse, emotive tracks produced by Aaron Dessner of The National.
