Lets get right to it

Violens have a new winter mixtape. ‘The mix introduces four songs from Violens forthcoming album alongside some wildly unique mash-ups which blend their own performances with music and lyrics of My Bloody Valentine, The Byrds, and Wire among others. Also, there are remixes of tracks from their debut EP, Violens own remixes of White Lies Unfinished Business, a new collaboration with Caroline Polachek of Chairlift, and a gorgeous acoustic cover of Saint Etiennes Avenue.’ Its free.

RCRD LBL has the new song by Beach House called ‘Norway‘. Very lush and beautiful, what we now expect from this duo.

-If you can’t get enough Hand Drawn Dracula (from the podcast and mixtape), I’ve got more for you. Brian Borcherdt‘s free EP ‘Torches’ is available here.

Sloan has a new record out called ‘Hit & Run’. Its available on their website with a free single of ‘Take It Upon Yourself‘.

-Listening to Tales Of Sarah Jane, The Golden Horse by Montreal’s Intensive Care. They are performing at Rancho tonight in Toronto, more details here.

-And finally, loving Daytrotter’s iPhone/iTouch app. Saturday afternoon now has a ‘go-to’ soundtrack.
