A Playlist For The New Year

I love making playlists to coincide with different celebrations and moments in life.  I used to sit for hours making mix tapes on cassette, picking out the perfect songs and making sure they were in the right order.  For this playlist I chose a mixture of feel-good songs that will get your hips shaking, and songs that symbolize a clean, fresh start for the New Year.  Listen to it tonight, or put it on repeat tomorrow! Happy New Year everyone! Read More

However, as I was going through our music library on RDIO I kept finding songs that evoke the same feeling as the catalog – the feeling of fresh air sweeping past you as you ride, giving your cheeks that perfect rosy glow.  Read More

My Favorite Albums Of 2012 – And A Playlist

Deciding on my ten favorite albums of 2012 is no easy task. It’s fun to look back on all the new music that came out this year, though, and bring some amazing songs and albums back to the forefront of my mind.  It’s interesting to think about all the new bands I was introduced to and new music that made up the soundtrack to the past year of my life, and the memories that go along with them.

It’s as if someone has placed a layer of hazy, fairy-dusted glass over my eyes.  Read More
