Keep Shelly in Athens return to the USA this week for an extensive North American tour (including 4 TX dates!) starting on Halloween, and to celebrate, the duo made us a glorious, dreamy/moody mix of some of their current favorites. Featuring Alessia Cara, You'll Never Get To Heaven, their collaborators Ocean Hope, their FoF labelmates IDYLL, and more. Listen below, and check the full tracklist + all of KSiA's tour dates after the jump. KSiA's new record Now I'm Ready is out now on Friends of Friends.

Montreal's TOPS will descend upon Texas this fall for a handful of shows in November, including a stop in Dallas on the 5th before heading down to Austin for this year's insane Fun Fun Fun Fest and a very rad FFF Nites show (that we'll be able to share details for soon). In anticipation of their FFF show, the group put together a sweet little mix featuring some jams they're listening to at the moment, featuring Altered Images, Annie Lennox, Q Lazzarus, Strawberry Switchblade, and more. Listen below + check the full trackslist and the band's reason for including each track after the jump...
As we continue to celebrate the 5th anniversary of one our favorite labels in the world, we've lovingly and carefully curated this perfect (in our opinion), hour-long Cascine 5YR mixtape, made up of some of our personal favorite tracks from the label's deep and consistently stellar catalog. Featuring classics from Korallreven, Yumi Zouma, Keep Shelly in Athens, Lemonade, Airbird & Napolian + much more, as well as previously unreleased tracks from Jensen Sportag, Boat Club + Chad Valley, it's a beautiful reminder of just how much great stuff these guys have helped put out into the world over the past 5 years. You'll be able to cop the tape in physical form as part of Cascine's limited 5YR pack (along with a tee and a new Yumi Zouma 12") soon, or right now with tickets to Cascine's 5YR party next month at Brookyn's Wythe Hotel. Listen to the mixtape below exclusively on Spotify, and check the full tracklist after the jump...
Gorilla vs. Bear V goes down next week here in TX, and for the fifth year in a row, Dallas' own DJ Sober (who will be DJ'ing between sets all night at both GvsB shows) has hooked up the official mix to get us even more psyched for the occasion. This year's tape — featuring all of the acts playing this year's sold-out shows (Jamie xx, Lower Dens, Tei Shi, Bop English, Yumi Zouma + Prince Innocence), a couple GvsB alums (Panda Bear, Empress of), and a bunch of other stuff we're into at the moment — is arguably the best one yet, and is essentially an hour-long glitter-wavy summer jam. Listen/download below, check the tracklist after the jump, and look for this one to potentially make its way to cassette at some point in the near future...
