Everyday is Like Sunday, Except for Blue Monday and Ruby Tuesday, and...Well, Friday I'm in Love: Weekly Mix #14

This week I decided to create a celebratory mix in honour of me returning home from grad school. It's been a trying eight months with a crappy living situation and challenging courses, and I'm relieved to be home where I have friends and family. I'm also back with my CDs and records, which I missed (digital copies will never be the same as being able to look at liner notes and watching your collection expand on a shelving unit). I may still have a lot of hard work ahead of me with writing my Masters thesis, but knowing that I'll be living here, makes everything much easier.

All of the tracks on this mix are upbeat and have a festive momentum to them. From the airy melodies of Apples in Stereo and Blink to the romping propulsion of The New Pornographers and Patrick Wolf to the expansive anthems of Big Country and Arcade Fire to the funky fun of David Bowie, Kate Bush and Luke Haines, this compilation definitely makes me smile. I'm going to call this mix Escape.

Tremendous mix - I thought I was the only person in the world who had ever heard of Blink.....

Now that you're back with all your music, the choice of songs for the mix increases.....and converesly, becomes more difficult to nail down in the way that you would want. Well, that's what I found anyway...
