Summer 2012 Mix Tape

by LeeAnne on August 21, 2012

It’s time for another mix tape! Here’s a sampling of the songs currently in heavy rotation on my iPod, whether new, new-to-me, or old favorites that I’ve come back to for one reason or another. I’ve been slightly obsessed with Tiesto’s Club Live Vol. 1 recently; it’s a great road trip record and best listened to in its entirety. Lots of the tracks on this mix I heard first via TV/movies, such as Phillip Phillips’ “Home” (used heavily during coverage of Olympics gymnastics), The Lumineer’s “Ho Hey” (from a Bing commercial that plays often on Hulu), a cover of “Love is Blindness” by Jack White (used to great effect in trailer for The Great Gatsby, which was delayed til next summer… what!?!?!), and “Breath of Life” by Florence +The Machine (from closing credits of Snow White and the Huntsman). I heard of Jessica Latshaw thanks to a viral video of her jamming with folks on the subway; can’t wait to hear more from her. And, how great is it that Fiona apple is back!?!?!? But let’s get to it… Following each track listing is a link to iTunes or Amazon, where you can listen to a preview. I hope you’ll find some new songs to love!
