I recently discovered that my fellow pick-up soccer addict, Alanna, has an amazing taste in music and she has turned me on to some good bands like Delicate Steve (Steve Marion) and his side project Saint Rich.
So this mix includes the soulful sounds of Saint Rich and also some garage band blues from White Denim's new album, Corsicana Lemonade. I also can't get enough of Allah-Las with their reverb-ridden psychedelic surf rock similar to the sounds of Brian Jonestown Massacre. Oh, and I cannot not mention Wild Belle - a little bit of jazz with some elements of disco and a smoky soulful voice. Simply amazing.
Listen to this mix when you feel the need to chill out with some slightly upbeat music. And if you like it, also check out August's Psychedelic Summer Mixtape.
