Timing is Everything

I've been working diligently on my 2009 mix. It's a little bit longer than I initially thought it might be, but oh well, this is the stuff I liked. 2009 has been a pretty good year, even if I was attending less gigs. One of the more memorable events of 2009 is illustrated in the images below.

It was also a pretty good year for music. I tried to keep my tracklist low, but it slid up to 30 and I couldn't figure out what to cut. Therefore, I'm just gonna post the whole thing in its entire glory. Some of the songs are kinda long (5 tracks at 7 mins or more) and the entire mix clocks in around 2 hours and 15 minutes. But as I mentioned, this is the stuff I liked, for better or for worse. Check it out, maybe you'll like it. Burn an mp3 disc or stick it on your media player of choice. Scope the tracklist below, and download it here if it suits your fancy. Props to my buddy, @MiriamIsntFunny, from twitter who inspired the mix title when I couldn't come up with a thing.

Nice photo montage! And hey, there's some stuff in here I like. Wish I could give this a listen right now but you know my archaic computer at work can't handle anything (hopefully I'll be able to actually open things in my new job).

Also, don't think I've commented on your new (ish?) blog photo and text. I love it! Love the photo and the font especially. Suits my London winter mood.

Just getting this. Lot of stuff I would never listen to, which makes it a great mix. You are a model mixmaker.
