The Paper Kites | TwelveFour | Concert | Lee’s Palace – Toronto


The Paper Kites is such a sweet sweet band from the land of down under.  I’ve taken the full albums from the two EP’s and made them into a mixtape that you can download here.  I had the opportunity to go see them last night at Lee’s Palace in Toronto and it was a sweet show.



I fell in love for the soft reflective feel they give.  If you want to hear some older stuff you can hit this post.  The new album is a tiny bit forward for them as a group and the trailer of the album is shown below.  Such a cool process of writing music each night only between midnight and 4am.

The new album is nice.  I’ve highlighted some songs below the trailer


Experience The Paper Kites | New Music Is Good For You | Sweet Weekend Songs

The Paper Kites from the land of down under just came to the United States to tour.  They are covering North America right now with a new album.  The songs below are older Paper Kites.  I’m hitting the concert tonight.  Love the soft voices.  Perfect for the weekend or a nice rainy day that you can fill it with music as you get through it.

The album before this new one is called “States” and it’s beautiful.  I’ve used their songs on the “Sunday Morning” mixes. Listen to them below. Listen to the sweetness pouring out of your speakers or earbuds.  I will do a new blog post soon of the new album.

You know this one below if you have downloaded my “Sunday Morning” Mix which is so delightful. Fuck me… it’s such a sweet song. You can never get up grumpy to this one.

 The Paper Kites have come out with a new Album called “States” which is sweet.  Super sweet.  It’s kind of a lie on the bed kind of album.  Just love the vibe and sound of The Paper Kites.  Looking forward to them touring in the future again in this area.

So many sweet memories of these songs.  This is the perfect music to give a massage to.  (no comment)

I wanted to share them.  They just released a new album called “States” which is wild.  Here is the first two EP’s from this band from the “land down under”.   I have Bloom, Woodland and Featherstone on my Sunday Morning mix.  Paint is also a sweet song.

You can download the songs in two files here below from my dropbox & upload them into your iTunes
