Thanks to Christmas, and stocking stuffers in the shape of iTunes’ gift cards, I get to start off the new year with new music. I could use the money to buy a whole album of a favorite artist, but I much prefer taking a chance on music that, based on 30-second previews, sounds kind of interesting. This year’s spree includes a lot of solid beats, mostly alternative, but with a little Disneymania thrown in for pizazz.
I mean, why not?
1] Intro – The xx
2] Can You Tell – Ra Ra Riot
3] Horchata – Vampire Weekend
4] Only You (Imogen Heap Mix) – Joshua Radin
5] Love Lost – Temper Trap
6] Nostrand – Ratatat
8] Little Baby Pines – Sunbears!
9] Kiss the Girl – Colbie Caillat
