Baa Mix 80: Fall 2014 (Part II)

Here’s a Fall present for you. Baa Mix 80.  Julian! Lupe! Andrew! Cold War Kids! Theophilus! IT’S TOO MUCH GREATNESS. *Swoons*

If you’re going to listen to one song on here, let it be the spectacular musical chaos of “Where No Eagles Fly” because WOW. (Oh, and “Tribe”. For the love of God, listen to “Tribe.” That’s two. I know, I’m cheating.)

P.S. The video for “Where No Eagles Fly” is not so good, what with the fake blood and the creepy close-ups and the 80s effects. But the music is YES.

  1. Theophilus London/Jesse Boykins III—Tribe
  2. Kasabian—Eez-Eh
  3. Wiz Khalifa—Promises
  4. Cold War Kids–First
  5. Julian Casablancas—Where No Eagles Fly (From about the halfway point on is basically one of the best things I’ve heard EVER EVER EVER IN MY LIFE.)
  6. In the Valley Below—Lover
  7. In the Valley Below—Dove Season
  8. Iggy Azalea—Walk the Line
  9. Broods—Mother and Father
  10. Bear’s Den—Above the Clouds of Pompeii (Warning: If you listen to this song closely, it might make you sad.)
  11. Mike Doughty—Light Will Keep Your Heart Beating in the Future
  12. Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness—Cecilia and the Satellite (About his daughter, SO SWEET.)
  13. Lupe Fiasco/Jennifer Hudson—Remission (This song. Oh this song. Created for Stand Up to Cancer, so GO BUY IT. Original is great too.) 
  14. The Zolas—Strange Girl
  15. The Zolas—Invisible (His Majesty Andre Remix)
  16. The Kooks—Bad Habit
  17. Sheppard—Geronimo
  18. New Found Glory—Selfless
  19. Hands Like Houses—Introduced Species. (There’s a new remix out, but I prefer the orignal.)

    Thanks for the tips! Several were new to me. Downloaded quite a few. Kooks and Bear’s Den are already in heavy rotation over here. A few you may want to check out that I’m loving: Happy Idiot, TV on the Radio (They’re baaack!); Flickers, by PROM; Swim, by JAWS (solid album – and what’s with the all caps thing?); Lifespan, by Vaults: Take Shelter, by Delta Spirit (nutha’ great album all around); Love Ain’t Enough, by The Barr Brothers; Rome, by Snowmine… To name a few. Thanks again for regularly enhancing my Current Faves playlist, Sabaa!

    This mix makes me so happy! When I try to discuss music with the people in my life, I get blank stares because none of them have heard of any of the bands/artists I mention. Broods are probably my favorite thing happening right now. Their sound is so unique. Julian is a classic- The Strokes got me through middle school! Haha.

    I’m also really loving Sir Sly, Alt-J, and The Griswolds. All fantastic bands!
