[mix] (31) Days of Good: 2011


As I prep #31days2016, I find myself exploring the tunes from past (31) Days of Good. It seems counter productive when i’m writing about the best new music of the year, but listening to old favorites seems to motivate me more. Last month, Brendan and I revisited the early blogspot days of Concrete Opinions and 35mmBeats on Revolutions Per Minute and had a blast. So, as we approach the “best of season”, i thought it would be nice to share my old (31) Days of Good playlists. 


[new music roundup] 4.9.13


A few of my favorite new releases, including James Blake’s sophomore effort, Overgrown, The Postal Service’s 10 year anniversary re-release of Give Up, M83’s film score for Oblivion, and the much anticipated Shaking the Habitual from The Knife.  As always, be sure to visit Largehearted Boy for more new music.
