2009 was a slow year for monthly mixes. This was the December mix...just took me a while to put a cover on it. Some of the usual suspects from past mixes found on this one, like The Avett Brothers, Pela and Phish. This mix also includes two songs from a band I had the opportunity to see live in Austin, TX (Hayes Carll).
2010 brings with it a renewed commitment from me to "step up my game" so to speak. That said, the first mix of 2010 is almost complete as is the mix from the new tradition my wife and I started last year (creating a compilation of our favorite songs from all the mixes of the year). So expect another 2 where this one came from fairly soon.
