I didn’t listen to as much new music this year as I would’ve liked to, partly because I was so busy, and partly because podcasts took up a huge majority of my ipod listening time, but the music I did listen to I enjoyed the hell out of and listened to incessantly. NZCA/Lines became a new favorite for me. Niki & The Dove and T.E.E.D. released their first full lengths. And there were lots of other new discovers and old favorites. I know some people think mixes shouldn’t have more than one song from artist but for a lot of people on this list I just couldn’t choose one, and also fuck rules.
I know this list is probably omitting a lot of noteworthy stuff, but I’m just very bad at paying any attention to what’s going on in the cultural zeitgeist. I’m sure next year I’ll be catching up on what was popular this year.
I like sharing mixes in the hopes that even just one person will discover something they love.
I usually put a lot of thought into the order of my mixes, but it’s 3:30am and I kinda got lazy, but hopefully it’s a good listen anyway. Enjoy.
…I’ll probably edit this post to not be so boring after I’ve gotten some rest.
