theOCMD Mixtape: Songbirds

The days are shorter, the nights are colder. And so I found myself compelled to make a mix to fit this mood. So here it is, a collection beautiful, etherial sounds from some of my favorite female artists. Songbirds who are Mon the rise whose sounds you can curl up to…or fly away with.

Follow me on my platform of choice, @soundcloud, for my latest music updates.

Twin Shadow Remixes

How nice of George Lewis Jr. – aka Twin Shadow – to load up all of his remixes into this handy dandy SoundCloud set for us all to enjoy. While none of these are necessarily new tracks, I’ve been enjoying the collective reprise of these classics from Surfer Blood, Lemonade, Bear in Heaven and more. Kinda like a walk down indie music lane, circa 2010.
