a new music mix! and just in the nick of time, as July is almost over. let that sink in: july. is. almost. over. that means we are in the latter half of 2015 and before we know it, it will be CHRISTMAS!
i’ve made an effort to fill this month’s music mix with mostly, well, new music. these are all albums that have recently been released (at least this year) or are about to be released. so if you want to discover some new tunes then you’d best delve into these here tracks. i know people are hating on the new Mumford & Sons album, and personally i am not a fan, but Tompkins Square Park is a pretty great track. i am also loving the new Lord Huron album.
no, this is not an April Fool’s. it’s an actual real life music mix! oh, there are some goodies in here you guys.
i broke my promise to bring you a music mix every month. and for that, i’m sorry. i hope this makes it up to you? x o x o happy friday the thirteenth / valentines day (whichever you choose to celebrate). just press play!
some of you know that i contribute to Noonday Tune, i post a new song every second Friday and, with most things in my life, i always leave it to the last second – and spend a good 10 minutes to an hour on a Friday morning listening to new music so i have a good one to share by 12pm.
i must apologise for dropping the ball on Mid Week Distraction this week, it pained me to do it – but things have been too crazy round here. there are only 7 working days left of the year in my personal calendar, and of course EVERYONE wants their projects finished before people go on leave. not to mention social commitments like seeing family and friends and attending christmas parties (and buying gifts!) and the whole toot. so needless to say i haven’t even glanced over the internet this past week, so there are actually no distractions to be had…
December: the best month and also the worst month. best because holidays, christmas, family, food, summer (for us, at least), etc etc. worst because – how the heck is it December already? just an ever present reminder that time flies and you probably didn’t get to do everything you wanted to this year.
wow guys, this is an exciting first for the blog!! you all know i am a GREAT music lover and mix maker, so i’m THRILLED to be hosting an exclusive pre-release stream of Classics, the new album by She & Him! featuring 13 cover songs of greats like Unchained Melody, She, Time After Time, Stars Fell On Alabama – the list goes on and on. it is a wonderful album, one that i will certainly have on repeat this coming Christmas.
