Our Friends Are Your Friends - #3

Before the tubes were there to get us hip with new music, it was up to our friends to clue us in. It is in this spirit that we bring you the Our Friends are Your Friends series -- each month we ask our most trusted concert buddies to make a compilation of what they have been jamming as of late.

Our friend/your friend @zylker has yet another Our Friends are Your Friends compilation lined up for us. She explains:

In this month's mix it was impossible for me not to include one of the tracks off of my fav alt bro's latest EP - Anco's Fall Be Kind. Decided against highlighting the much touted track sampling Grateful Dead's Unbroken Chain, and instead went with my EP fav of I Think I Can.

I really dug Church when I caught them at Amnesia back in October opening for Maus Haus, so opted to include them on this month's mix. Two favorite shows of mine in the past month were The Drums at Popscene and the Japandroids at Rickshaw, so i've highlighted tracks from each of them.

I've also included some tracks from bands coming to SF in the next month - Edward Sharp & The Magnetic Zeros, Tegan and Sara, and Phantogram. And of course included a few SF local favorites - The Mantles, Thao with the Get Down Stay Downs and Sonny and The Sunsets.
