It’s that time of year where we make lists! Nice lists, naughty lists (quite fond of those) and my favorite, “Best of” lists. It’s fun to take a step back and really evaluate all of my loves over the past year and let me tell you, I really got around! Some albums were mere crushes or flirtations, others I fell for hard and fast but then cooled and still others where the love started as a spark and grew to a great roaring fire.
After much soul searching and extreme self-imposed stress, I believe I came up with my Best of 2011. 10 favorite albums, 5 favorite EPs. As is my tradition, I created a mixtape for you all to download and enjoy. 2 tracks off of my favorite albums and a single track off of my favorite EPs. Maybe we share loves, maybe you’ll fall for someone new, give it a download and let’s find out! Can always give it listen over on 8tracks too!
As promised, here is my latest mixtape for you and yours to download and enjoy. This mix has some of my favorite songs of late, many of which you’ve already seen on this little blog. Dig in! If you can’t grab it quite yet but still are itching to listen, give it a spin over on 8tracks. Or download it here.
Please do a solid and support these artists. Buy a shirt or a record, catch a show, send the band a little love note. Do as the title suggests and give as you do get so we can keep getting more. After all, what would life be like without a killer soundtrack?
And as always, hit up my mixtape hub to download other mixes!
