Due to some unforeseen complications, we missed last week’s Weekend Mix from The Tale of The Tape. It was a good mix that opened with a brand new My Morning Jacket track from the upcoming Circuital, due out May 31.

To make up for it, we’ve spent the weekend pulling double duty. In other words, two Weekend Mixes in one weekend. It’s worked out pretty well, too, considering the rain hasn’t stopped for two days.

This week’s mix includes a preview from the new Fleet Foxes album, Helplessness Blues, which arrives May 3.

As always, thanks to The Tale of The Tape for sharing.

Stay dry.
