Music Discovery #15 of 2012

What better way to shake off your case of the Mondays but with a list of fantastic music from this past week, curated by yours truly.

All the music below is worth a listen, but be sure to watch the video for Beirut – The Rip Tide. I really enjoyed the visual twist at the end, and of course the song is swell.

The Charli XCX mixtape is decent, shared primarily for the first track which is a cover of Blood Orange – Champagne Coast, which is great and was shared in one of my posts previously.

Lastly, The Mynabirds track has a riff that reminds me of the “I wish it was Christmas today” song from SNL.

And yes, there seems to be some sort of bird theme this week.
