    It's G.O.O.D. Friday! This week we've embedded a new, snappy mixtape flash player (complete with artwork!) that should be working better than the conventional unit. We hope you enjoy. It was a great week for new stuff, so as a result, the mixtape this week is BANGIN'. in case you missed any of it the first time around, soak up some tasty tunes below.

    A lot of advance music isn't on Spotify yet, so the streaming playlist version is a bit more incomplete than usual. Sorry about that!

    New! Listen to (some of) the mixtape on Spotify!

    1. "The House That Heaven Built" - Japandroids - Celebration Rock

    Japandroids new album already promises to be full of the adrenaline fueled, fist-pumping anthems that makes this band sound larger than life (despite being a drum and guitar two-piece).

    2. "Gun Has No Trigger" - Dirty Projectors - Swing Lo Magellan

    Looks like the Dirty Projectors are trading in their freak-card for something a bit more funky, and it couldn't be more exciting. Does anyone else just hear the opening of How I Got Over with all those background vocals?

    3. "Everything Is Gone" - POP ETC - Mixtape

    Although opinions differ on the name swap from The Morning Benders to POP ETC (it wasn't decided on a whim), at least the music is still really fun and sonically exploratory. Can't wait until these guys drop their new album (still to be named).

    4. "Bloody Mary (Nerve Endings)" - Silversun Pickups - Neck Of The Woods

    The first single off the forthcoming Silversun Pickups LP is pretty promising and fresh, and considering the LA buzz band's ten-year tenure, it's even more exciting that they still excite us.

    5. "Landline" - Oberhofer - Time Capsules II

    This song is the catchiest. Time Capsules II is out there, go get it.

    6. "SW9" - Fort Romeau - B-Side

    Fort Romeau is a British dance producer who likes to play with minimalism (but never marry it). The result is always interesting. This track is non-album, but if you like what you hear, he has a whole album out there already called Kingdoms.

    7. "Eyeoneye" - Andrew Bird - Break It Yourself

    Andrew Bird needs no introduction.

    8. "Warrior" - Mark Foster, Kimbra, A-Trak - Converse

    Best 'Three Artists. One Song' EVER. Just, perfect.

    9. "Man on Fire" - Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros - Here

    Man, these guys really nail the old-timey aesthetic without sounding forced, stale, or unbelievable. New album coming soon, to be swiftly followed by another totally new album (baller).

    10. "Expire" - Screaming Females - Ugly

    Something about this song makes me want to surf with Nerf guns. Anyone else getting that?
