Hey guys, I just got on the forum today to check in and I noticed that my mixtape is due today. Luckily it was basically done. I just did one last listen though and now it's flowing right.
I guess the reason I gave this mixtape the title "The Music that Changed with Me" is because my taste in music has changed so much in even the past 3 years. I guess you can say that I started to enjoy many more genres than ever before. When I was 13, all I listened to was metal. I still love it now, but I don't know how I could listen to it all the time. (I can make a metal mix tape if enough people want one) But I kind of moved into new times in my life, and with this came new music. So here Is The Music that Changed with Me.
Grey fox- How 'Bout a warm glass of shut the hell up!
I live in yakima washington and this is a band from my town. They are amazing and I thought I'd put em in the tape.
Against Me!- What We Worked For
This is one of the best songs that they put out after the reinventing of axl rose album. I don't know what it is, I just love it.
Ben Nichols- The Kid
This guy is the front man for lucero. He recorded a solo album and its really good! Check it out.
Gaslight Anthem- SATQ
I know we're already on a gaslight forum, but I put my two favs on the tape. This song just started growing on me and I love it. This ep is amazing.
MxPx- Do Your Feet Hurt
I have grown up listening to these guys. My cousin showed me them when I was prolly 10. He's been obsessed with with them since he was 13 and he was fan of the year last year. He proposed to his wife on stage at an mxpx show. He even played this song at his wedding. But anyways, this is one of their older songs, but it's good.
The Lonely Forest-Blackheart vs. Captain America
This band is from the seattle area. They have played at a festival in town for a few years and they are pronominal live band. They recordings are very good as well.
MewithoutYou- The Fox, The Crow, And The Cookie
I just this band last month and they are an amazing live band. I've listened for these guys for years now and their newest album is just as good.
Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground- Hey Momma'
This band opened for mewithoutyou when I saw them and they blew me away!!! They are soo talented. They are actually signed to suberban home records, so that's really cool.
Beirut- The Akara
This guys is an amazing song writer and he incorperates many instruments into his music. I'm going to see him in san francisco soon.
Bon Iver- Wisconsin
Bon Iver was created when a guy had a really rough time of his life and he went into to a cabin in the winter to "hibernate". While he was up there he was playing around on his guitar and decided to record and album. He had some friends bring up recording equipment and instruments. The final product was breathtaking, It is by far one of the greatest albums I've heard in a while.
The Swell Season- When Your Minds Made Up
Glen Hansard started this project for the movie "Once", and most of the music in the movie is on the album. Both the movie and album are incredible. His voice and still is very unique and he is an amazing artist.
Bruce Springsteen- Lost in the Flood
While looking for which spingsteen song I wanted to put on the mixtape, I stumbled upon this song. It just had something special. I don't know what it was, but now it's one of my favorite springsteen songs.
Rocky Volotato- The Night's Disguise
Rocky is an amazing acoustic artist from seattle. I've seen him a couple of times and he is amazing live. This is one of my favorite songs by him.
Port O'Brien- I Woke Up Today
I found this band when I was looking for new music online. I bought the album on vinyl and it blew me away. This song is the best song they have written.
Manchester Orchestra- Shake it Out
These guys have been on tour with brand new and mewithoutyou, so I decided to check em out and their latest album in incredible. The passion and intensity in their songs are hard to match.
MewithoutYou- Nice and Blue Part 2
I already put one song by these guys on here, but i had to give you a taste of their older style.

Sufjan Steven- The Perpetual Self, or "What would Saul Alinsky do?"
This guy is ridiculous. He released and album with 20+ tracks and put out the bsides for the same cd and there were 20 more songs. He cranks out music sooo fast, but it is all amazing. He is a musical genius. He plays just about every instrument known to man and is accompanied by a full band and orchestra and his shows.
Tegan and Sara- You Wouldn't Like Me
I really got into these guys for a while about a year ago. They are just a fun acoustic band from canada. Tegan Is in track six on the album new wave by against me!

Just needed to put one more of his songs.
Fleet Foxes- Blue Ridge Mountains

One of my favorites. Had to put it on.

Gogal Bordello- Never Young
I found out about this band after sasquatch, and I was pissed cause I would have gone if I knew who they were before. But anyways, they have a few songs in the movie Wristcutters, amazing movie by the way. But they are a gypsy punk band and they are incredible.
Well 25 tracks later, that is all.
Hope you enjoy it and let me know what you guys think!!!
