Not All Beer and Skittles: Music of 2016 PT. 1

Hello all! 2016, what a pit amirite? Music wasn’t bad in 2016 though, in fact I think over the last couple years it might be my favorite year. I’ve made two mixes of 25 songs a piece. They’re some of my favorites, and not necessarily the best, just stuff I really dug this year. So I’m not calling this a “best of” and more a personal collection of what I was interested in that came out this year. Enjoy!
