If you use Spotify (and chances are if you're interested in this Friday Mixtape post you already do) then you may have noticed the "related artists" tab on nearly every band's profile page. Click on it, and a list of bands with similar styles or historical connections to the original band will appear. Click on it again for that band—and the next—and the next— and you'll start a musical journey without end.
This Friday Mixtape is the result of exploring that tab. In all, 19 tracks are here, culminating with one of 2013's best songs so far, "Miracle Mile" by Cold War Kids. Perhaps you caught our review of that album back in April.
