MIXTAPE: BRAVERY



Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

THE ARCADE FIRE - SPRAWL ii (MOUNTAINS BEYOND MOUNTAINS)
deceptively dark song. but it is brave to realize and maintain a longing for innocence and peace in a world that is invading its own borders.

SANTIGOLD - SHOVE IT
sometimes we don't need to be afraid to tell people how we feel. "so if you know another way/ you can't look the other way/ you know another way/ tell them so right to their face"

BEN KWELLER - RUN
running with anyone (literally, or figuratively) is a courageous series of steps.

SIMON & GARFUNKEL - AMERICA
a song of discovery and honesty; a brave journey.

RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN - I HAVE CONFIDENCE
it's what we grew up on. have some confidence in yourself, there's no reason not to. at least you're not a former nun who has to take care of a hardass's seven children.

ROBYN - INDESTRUCTIBLE
it was brave of us to put this song on this mixtape. does a power-love ballad really fit in here? we don't care. check out the acoustic version, please.

THE BLACK KEYS - SET YOU FREE
shoot. it takes some bravery to leave your man (for some douche in a band...?)

JOHNNY CASH - MAN IN BLACK
"but i'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back/ till things are brighter, i'm the man in black" analyze as applicable

MY MORNING JACKET - THE BEAR
it takes cajones (no, not of the bureau drawer variety) to admit mistakes and guilt. but there's still time for us all.

THE NEW PORNOGRAPHERS - CHALLENGERS
at some point in your life you're going to have to be a challenger of the unknown. be brave.

THE NATIONAL - BABY, WE'LL BE FINE
"all we gotta do is be brave and be kind"

KANYE WEST FEATURING JUSTIN VERNON - LOST IN THE WORLD
aren't we all? take heart.

DON WILLIAMS AND EMMYLOU HARRIS - IF I NEEDED YOU
unfortunately, this is not the original artist singing. the real song is beautiful, listen to it here. it takes bravery to acknowledge weakness. we all need each other, and that sounds stupid, but come on, we do.

enjoy the first little chief mixtape. or else we might box your ears.

-EL CAPITÁN and THE HUNTER
