Thanksgiving Friday Mixtape! 


This week, whether on the road headed for home, sitting around a fire stuffed with, well, stuffing or calling up loved ones on the phone from a distance, queuing up this Friday Mixtape ought to provide the perfect accompanying music.

With two of the trilogy’s albums released thus far, Cooper is on the verge of completing the ultimate musical delineation of heritage and familial tribulation. It appears to be a bit of an extension of the song that got Cooper’s Radical Face noticed back in 2009; the swooning anthem “Welcome Home, Son.”

Along with Cooper’s music are other songs with a homeward bent, including “A House is a Home,” a lovely duet by Ben Harper and his mother Ellen from their new album Childhood Home. There are other new songs sure to conjure up the same kind of ideas as well from the likes of Talisco and brother/sister duo Angus & Julia Stone.

Classics from Simon & Garfunkel, Crosby, Stills & Nash are also here as is perhaps the most popular song about home released in recent memory that isn’t by someone named Skylar; namely “Home” by Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeroes.
