Brian’s mixtape #9: Guest playlist – The Yellow Bird project

It’s that time again folks, Brian should have rolled up his sleeves and rifled through his dusty old LPs to find you 45 minutes of musical magic to get your week off to a good start. However, this week Brian’s found a crafty way to be lazy and passed the playlist making duties over to his pals at the Yellow Bird Project.

YBP is a lovely organisation that asks bands to design t-shirts, prints them on ethically-sourced (and rather well-cut) tees and donates all its profits to a charity of the band’s choice. They’ve worked with legends like Devendra Banheart, Bon Iver, The Shins and LOADS more. You should defintitely check them out.

It’s clear from the artists that they work with that the folks at YBP have impeccable taste and it’s hard to be cross with Brian for shirking his mixtape-making responsibiliies when it’s resulted in one as good as this:

Dying is Fine – Ra Ra Riot
Temazcal – Monsters of Folk
Little Lion Man – Mumford and Sons
Forecast Fascist Future – Of Montreal
Gimme Sympathy – Metric
Beneath the Rose – Micah P Hinson
Miss Misery – Elliot Smith
Relief – Chris Garneau
All The Night Without Love – Elvis Perkins
Whites Only Party – The Dears
Cover My Eyes – La Roux
Magnetized – Laura Viers
