Monday’s are bleak my friends. Filled with sleepy eyes, regrettable memories of your weekend second life and not.enough.coffee. This mixtape is cool and just weird enough to keep you on your toes during whatever it is that won’t keep you awake at work. If that doesn’t convince you, there’s Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” 4 minutes in. DO IT. Your morning report will be fucking kick-ass because of it. Promise.
Okay, new music obsession right here. Tesla Boy. From Moscow, Russia, Tesla Boy greets you with pure 80s synth pop lovin’. I feel like I should be in leather and surrounded by neon lights, a trans am and some futuristic sunglasses. It’s pure heaven. I’m honestly freaking out and eating up every single twist and blip on this mixtape. Isn’t it the most wonderful thing when you discover an amazing new band and fall in love at first listen?! That’s how I feel right now. I’m so excited.
Listen to a Tesla Boy mixtape simply titled mixtape 4.
If you love Yelle, take a peek at this awesome mixtape called “Patinoire” released by Yelle producers/DJs GrandMarnier and Julien Tiné. They describe their sound as “Refreshing and emo at the same time, like the best orange juice you ever had in your life!” Enjoy!

“Out of the dark and into the blue, two boys and a girl from Belgium collide to create Shindu. A refreshing synthpopsensation that embodies the challenge to take music into the dawn of a new era. Shindu dreams up stories to create jaunty yet clever tracks drenched in late 80s electronica and atmospherics.” -Shindu
