Corvallis native yOya turns in “Fool’s Gold,” a new song for 2014 with sweet piano melodies and lifted harmonies perfect for a spring sunset and the pillow-y rock track “All That I Needed” from Fremont—the side project of Nat Johnson and Dave Gulick of Portland’s pop rock band Derby—adds a song that is perfect for waking up to on a dew-frosted morning.

Along with EDM-backed island music from Party Supplies and hand-clap rock from The Sun Parade, even if a small shower does wash over the High Desert, this mixtape ought to mitigate it quite nicely.
