SUMMER JAMS 2012 | No Way Down by The Shins
What have we done?
How’d we get so far from the sun?
Lost, lost in an oscillating phase
Where a tiny few catch all of the rays
Maybe if I play The Shins on repeat, it will actually be April weather outside.

Here you will find a collection of covers from the catalog of The Magnetic Fields, as performed by indie bands over the past decade. I have actually had this sitting around for a few months and had forgotten that it was never posted, but lo and behold, I found it and figured it was time. This is a bit smaller than the previous Covered Mixtapes, but that’s all right because there is not a sore recording in the bunch.
So, without further ado, here’s a collection of songs originally performed by The Magnetic Fields as re-interpreted by artists over the years.
