Mixtape: April 2014

Hello you,

As in previous months, it gives us great pleasure to curate a mixtape with the majority of artists and tracks featured on the blog in April 2014...

There's oodles of summer sunshine available from Cheerleader and Maui.
Solo psych from The Boy I Used To Be and some exciting lo-fi songwriting from 10Tigers and Billionaire.
Glass Ankle and Swim Free relate two very different urban tales while You and Bernard + Edith provide some unsettling kookiness for after dark.
Post-rock, math-rock, art-rock and rock-rock from Stillwave, Polymath, Movie and Waste respectively.
Some sultry gypsy-folk from Echo Trails leads onto seasoned wistfulness from Yellow Ostrich.
The dancefloor finally fills up for indie-funksters, Pool and hit-makers, The Derevolutions.
I've stuck a random track on the end. Thank you for your submission, South Korea's Language Of Shapes. Your Scott Walker/Harry Nilsson with mandolin and djembe has been soundtracking some journeys recently.

To read up on what we thought about these tracks and artists and more, hop on over to http://www.gettingneardawn.com/2014_04_01_archive.html.

If you like a bit of this, like us properly at www.facebook.com/gettingneardawn or follow us at twitter.com/gettingneardawn or indeed, do both. What the hell.

Anyhoo, thank you so much for your continued support of Getting Near Dawn this last month. We relish reading the emails, DMs and other feedback you give us about the content. It really makes a difference.

Also we would like to extend our thanks to you for the continued support of all small, non-profit seeking music sites like our own. As with the indie record shop and small venue, without these outlying islands, inhabited by folk permanently wearing headphones and a pensive expression, new music can wither on the vine.
