Over the last few weeks I've been sampling a lot of my friends' Best of 2009 mixes. This week it's new music time. These are all songs I've bought in 2010 and I couldn't be happier with them. Here's a quick scouting report:
Freelance Whales comes from the Gonzo Gal and I really like this whole disc. It's chill music at it's best.
The version of My City of Ruin on this playlist is Bruce Springsteen's. However, Eddie Vedder covered it recently in a tribute to the Boss. Eddie put it out for sale as a benefit for Haiti so go buy it here now. Eddie's version is epic as always.
Only a Song is by Ben Sollee, who is a buddy of My Morning Jacket's, and this song is really cool.
The rest of the tunes are a little eclectic and some I was late to the party on, but at least I'm at the party now.
