Monday Mix #69: Shiny and new

And here we are, first Monday Mix of the new year! I hope everyone had a good weekend and a grand time ringing in the new year. And now I guess it is time to get on with it.

Again, no rhyme or reason to this week's list. Just a few songs I've been listening to as of late.

Musical sidenote numero uno: NPR has The Decemberists' new album The King is Dead available to preview in its entirety on First Listen! NPR, have I told you lately that I love you?

Musical sidenote numero dos: Heather, writer of my favourite music blog I am Fuel, You are Friends, released her top album picks for 2010 a couple of days ago. I love this blog because Heather has that rare ability to perfectly describe in words the way a song/album/artist makes you feel. And her taste in music jives with mine.
