Welcome to 2012! We have a delicious monthly mix to get your year off on the right foot.
Spanish Prisoners is about as solid as a Brooklyn-indie-experimental-pop band can get. Very accesible and very delightful.
Kwala is labeled as post-brostep…not sure what that is, but if this is it, it’s good. This album is perfect for almost every occasion-laid back, yet complex. Get your hands on it asap.
Sondre Lerche has conquered most musical geners. He has stellar jazz, pop, rock and acoustic albums as well as a movie score. This Christmas he blessed everyone with a fantastic acoustic cover of Beyoncé’s Countdown. You won’t be able to stop listening to it, I promise.
I had the great pleasure of knowing Grant Geertsma through my college years, and I still check back up on what he’s up to every now and again. He has an album of remarkably well done home recordings up on his bandcamp that are altogether phenomenal. His cover of Joni Mitchell’s A Case of You has been in my head for two weeks now. Do yourself a favor and grab everything Grant has ever recorded. 
I Am Oak has some choice indie-rock jams. Blue Hawaii produces some great mish-mash tunes. Craft Spells is a hip 80s throw-back Seattle band that’s on the rise. Orion Rigel Dommisse is the new Mirah. Enjoy:

About:

Every month I collect music from across the interweb, whittle it down to my favorite few, and share it with you. Some of the mix files are quite large and may take a couple minutes to download- but keep your cool, it's well worth the wait.

The best way to enjoy each mix is to:
1) Download the .zip (compresses) mix file.
2) Unzip the file (for mac users, just double click on it and that should do the trick)
3) Open the now exposed folder
4) Open itunes and make a new playlist (name it whatever the playlist is called)
5) Drag and drop the musical contents (minus the album art file) into the empty playlist.

ENJOY
