May 2013 Playlist




This month’s playlist is here! If I could use a phrase to describe it, I would say it’s…seasonally appropriate. You’ll find the link to the Spotify playlist and the link below. Enjoy!

March 2013 Playlist



I’ve been trying to post these playlists on the last day of each month, but I was in Chicago this weekend so I ended up finishing up this March mix today, the April 1st. (Not that anyone else cares about consistency on this blog.) Anyway, here are some songs I was into during the past month-ish. Enjoy!

February 2013 Playlist


Goodbye, February! Here are some of the songs that I was into this month, in one convenient playlist. (I’ve been listening to lots of other stuff too. One day, I will get better at mix-making and learn how to do it not on Spotify.)

January 2013 Playlist


Here it is – my first monthly playlist of 2013! I haven’t done this before but I thought it would be a good way to share all of the music – old and new – I’ve been listening to. There’s a bunch of stuff that I coudn’t include here because, well, Spotify doesn’t have any of the ‘Everything Is Embarrassing’ remixes that have come out this month. (Hopefully, one of these days, I will graduate from Spotify to some more sophisticated method of mix-making. But, alas, it’s all I can do for now.) Anyway, this is what I’ve been keeping warm with most days!
