James Williams

Through mix tapes, we can reveal our souls to would-be lovers, create perfect dance-party soundtracks and ease our way through lengthy road trips. We asked James Williams, lead vocalist of local indie-rock outfit the Feeling, to select five songs for his perfect mix tape. As he said of his choices, “Each blows my mind in a completely different way.”

1. “You Are My Sister”
by Antony and the Johnsons (from I am a Bird Now)

2. “Attack!”
by the Toys (from The Toys Sing “A Lover’s Concerto” and “Attack!”)

3. “Girls on the Run”
by Knock Knock

4. “I Was Never Young”
by Of Montreal (from The Sunlandic Twins)

5. “If That’s the Way You Feel”
by Nazz (from Nazz)
