December Mix

How about a new holiday mix? Sounds good.
This mix starts out a bit unconventional with a Fleet Foxes cover by Kina Grannis. But 'White Winter Hymnal' fits nicely here, I think. There's an abundance of good Christmas music out there that feels very indie singer/songwriter. I've gathered some of my favorites and mixed em up for you. I hope you enjoy it!

P.S. If you want to re-visit any of my previous 2011 mixes, you can listen to them here. Or, if you want to check out last year's Christmas mix, click here.

* This month's cover art is a picture I took recently of my favorite vintage ornament. It's a keepsake that was my grandmothers and I love it. It's very fragile and someday it might break, but I will always have this picture.

Good Luck and Enjoy!
