Music has the amazing ability to transport me to a time and a place.  I still remember what I was wearing when Milli Vanilli first told me toBlame It On The Rain,  the moment that Purple Rain narrated a hard breakup and when Justin taught me that I could bring Sexy Back.  Songs have always provided a soundtrack to my life through love, loss, sadness, happiness, laughter, tears and more.  A few years ago, I started making monthly music mixes so that I could track what I was listening to and if I felt like it, travel back in time for a few hours by playing one of them.

I noticed a pattern this year, January is pretty much the same mix as everything I was listening to in November and December (minus the holiday music).  And come February, I more or less have no interest in listening to any of those songs ever again.   Which results in spectacular mixes in February with brand spanking new music.   Since it’s so hard to find new music, I thought I would share this mix with you.

Here it is: Modern Dry Goods February 2013 Mix

What about you, do you have any other suggestions?

Happy Monday,

listen: Mix of the Month

I’m constantly looking for new music and last year I stumbled upon DJ Lucy Wrubel’s Mix of the Month Club. What is it exactly?  Think of it like wine of the month club, except for music. Every month you receive 80-minute mix of great music. Seriously, her mixes are awesome and range from reggae to alt country to bluesy tunes. So if you’re a music nerd like I am, sign up for Season Two here. Cheers!
