Softcore - July '10 Mixtape Party

Here's a little somethin' I put together for a mixtape party that a couple of my friends threw this July.  This isn't "mixed" together as a traditional DJ mix would be.  Rather, it's a collection of songs (mostly new and a few older ones) that I've been feeling as of late.  Figured I'd share it with the rest of you as well.  Enjoy!

2. We Can't Fly - Aeroplane
3. It's A Shame (Spinners cover) - Raphael Saadiq
4. Suspicious Minds - Elvis Presley
5. Care - Kaada
6. Don't Worry Baby - The Beach Boys
7. Boyfriend - Best Coast
8. Bhang Bhang, I'm A Burnout - Dum Dum Girls

Stream Best Coast's Debut Album - Crazy For You

You may very well have heard "When I'm With You" and "Boyfriend" already as they've been floating around for a minute.  Now you can stream Crazy For You, the debut album from Bethany Cosentino and company (better known as Best Coast).  Fuzzy, lo-fi beach pop at its finest.  The album's official release is set for July 27th on Mexican Summer.
