Mixtape | December 2017

Press Play Our final month of the year has officially been closed. This has been a fantastic music year, and I’ve been having a lot of fun putting together these monthly mixes again. It’s great to chronicle a year based on what you’ve been listening to, and we’re so lucky these days to have enough new music each month to put together these. I hope you enjoy some new tunes over your holiday break, and please let me know what I might have missed this month.

Mixtape | November 2017

As always if there’s something I missed, please leave a comment and tell me what it is.

The rigidity imposed on Boston Calling by the brick plaza and city restrictions has often made the festival feel tame- as if Disney hosted the proceedings. So it was fitting that this swan song for the Government Center location would feature a grandiose pop…

Photos by Colin McLaughlin [I]n these last days before we all laugh at how the world didn’t end, it helps to have a place you can go that helps you to see there is also a lighter side to popular enthusiasm. Talking about Christmas songs, and the warm feelings that they bring to the unScrooge-like among us. Enter the patron saint of (experimental) indie folk, Sufjan Stevens who gives more to the altar of holiday cheer than most small townships and who decided that this was the year to take his new 5 CD holiday set “Silver and Gold” out on…
