The YBP Mixtape


Greetings Yellow Birds,

This is your friendly neighbourhood Middle Distance Runner here to tell about something pretty excellent. Baeble Music, which is a site that primarily films concerts and puts them up on the net for everyone to see free of charge, also has a pretty excellent blog. For awhile now, I have been making these weekly mixtapes for them in a series called T.G.I.Mixtape, on which I showcase some of the hottest new tracks in the indie music world as well as some older stuff as well. This week, on the 28th volume in the series I have put together an extra special YBP edition, full of amazing songs by bands that have been involved in The Yellow Bird Project. It doesn’t get any better than this people! We’ve got Stars, Of Montreal, The National, k-os featuring Murray Lightburn from the Dears and much more! So head on over to Baeble to have yourself a listen to some quality tracks by some of our favourite artists.

Click here to listen to the mixtape.

Here is the full track list in case we haven’t already convinced you:

1. Stars – Division (B-Side from In Our Bedroom After The War)

2. Of Montreal – “Alter Eagle” (From ID Engager Single)

3. Uninhabitable Mansions – “Do You Have A Strategy?” (featuring members of CYHSY and Au Revoir Simone)

4. Broken Social Scene – “Needle In The Head”
