The Best of 2013

Much like 2009, there was a LOT of music listening going on in my life. Chalk that up to lengthy road trip preparation (and therefore obsessive playlist making), or going to a record number of concerts. There's a list inside this link, and a Spotify playlist for what is available online as well. Happy listening!

The Best of 2009

2009 was the year of the cover, encouraged by the Guilt By Association discs and my newfound love of Nouvelle Vague (the band; my love of the genre is longstanding). When I made my disks, I ordered the music by month; in this list, they’re just grouped by disc in whatever order the iTunes playlist export doled them out in, but you can pretty much follow when I would have heard them if you knew when the band was in Nashville, or what trip I was going on. And then Christmas. There was also one blank track in there, because, you know, pretension can be fun.

Note: The list usually isn’t this long. Apparently all I did in 2009 was listen to music; I recognize that it's a little out of control.
