And now, it our friend Chris Martin’s turn!
Here’s what he has to say about his mix:
“Here are some of my favorite songs from 2015. There’s no real theme here, aside from the fact that I’ve danced to most of these songs with my one year old son over the past year.
I tried to at least put the songs in an order that isn’t too jarring. The exception is the two songs at the end: The Valley Maker track is by a friend of mine and it was just too good to leave off even though it’s totally different than everything else on the list. The other exception is the Vince Staples song. It has some serious profanity in it, so I put it at the end so people can skip it if they want.
Finally, there’s some great music videos on this list. I especially love the Thundercat and Courtney Barnett videos.
