The Sunday Hype

January 3, 2010

With much deliberation, I have culled together this Sunday’s batch of noteworthy tunes. A few parts twee indie pop gems, a few parts club bangers, this mix is a true testament to my widely varied musical tastes. I am obsessed with playlist flow and organization, but I realize that most of you do not have time to sit down and listen to a mixtape in order. Alas. Still, be sure to explore the web dwellings of each of the artists below as a jumping off point for other great artists. Happy listening.
