I Made You Something

Boy are you in for a treat today! I've made you a lovely visual mix tape and I couldn't be more excited to share it! I've been very lucky lately and some dear, dear friends of mine have gifted me with some new music. Most of which I'd never heard of. Even luckier—they really know me and the music is exactly my taste and it's really helped to soothe my Spring fever. First, take a look at their lovely faces. Then, click on the You Tube links at the bottom to hear and view these sweet treats.
Cat Power + Josh Ritter
The National
She and Him + Beach House
Tallest Man on Earth + Elvis Perkins
Wooden Birds + Chris Garneau + Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings
The XX + Scattered Trees + Thao and the Get Down Stay Down
Hard to believe there's so much beauty and talent in the world huh? You haven't even begun to experience this post yet. The artists are listed from top to bottom (the first two images are of the same band but the rest only have one image each. I have a girl crush on Chan Marshall so she gets two spots. Can you blame me?).

No. 1: Cat Power—Lived in Bars // No. 2: Josh Ritter—Change of Time
No. 3: The National— Terrible Love // No. 4: She + Him— In the Sun
No. 5: Beach House— Zebra // No. 6: The Tallest Man on Earth— I Won't be Found (+ more)
No. 7: Elvis Perkins— Shampoo // No. 8: The Wooden Birds— Anna Paula
No. 9: Chris Garneau— Hands on the Radio
No. 10: Sharon Jones + the Dap Kings— 100 Days, 100 Nights // No.11: The XX— Crystalised
No. 12: Scattered Trees: A Conversation About Death on New Year's Eve Note: You can download this AMAZING album for FREE here
No. 13: Thao + the Get Down Stay Down— When We Swam

I hope you feel the love I've sent you with this little mix tape. It's overflowing!
