bittersweet between my teeth: Aubs’ January 2011 Mix

Making a mixtape in January is always a challenge, especially after compiling all of your favorites into a “Best of…” from the year prior. Thankfully, some great music has come out already this year, including Cold War Kids’ new record, which is a lot more arena-rockish than in the past (produced by Kings of Leon’s producer, and it shows) but I love it. A few other faves are “Young Blood” by The Naked and Famous, a New Zealand band that sounds like ol’ school MGMT (read: back when they were good), “Blow it Up” by The Vaccines (you’ll hear a lot more about this band in 2011) and “Poor in Love” by Destroyer, whose album comes out soon. And of course Frightened Rabbit’s “The Wrestle”, a track off of last year’s The Winter of Mixed Drinks, which I will go on record to say that it gets better and better with every listen. Which, given the fact that my play count just on my work computer exceeds 100, means it’s pretty phenomenal.
