With their month-long stint in Europe now weeks away, Elfin Saddle have put together this fantastic mixtape for us to pass to along. It's a pretty eclectic collection, weaving together threads of various folk musics and psych traditions, and offers some insight into what's gone towards crafting the band's singular sound: by turns whimsical and heartfelt, starry-eyed and world-weary.

Listen to "A Muddy Trail" below as a stream, or you can grab the mix as an MP3. A little further down you can check out a brief video the band together for the tour, featuring Devastates track "Kiboho." As always, check our tours page for dates.
