Yep. Yep. The 2012 Victory Mix

29th November 2011

Here’s what, 2012 is about to rock your face off. “Yep. Yep.” is a mix I put together for you and your steady progression toward victory. Leave us your 2012 song recs in comments. Cheers to a new year, my friends.

(I mostly live on Spotify now, so here’s the Yep. Yep. Mix over there, if you like it like that. The one below is from Rdio, which lets me embed the player with song previews.)

    Funnily enough, my you-WILL-survive-grad-school mix is titled YEP and has three tracks in common with your 2012 mix. This gives me warm fuzzies :)

    Some additions from that:
    “Breathe” – Alexi Murdoch
    “This Too Shall Pass” – OK Go
    “Do You Realize?” – Flaming Lips
    “Mouthwash” – Kate Nash

    Maybe you need some old school punk in there. “Oh Bondage Up Yours” by the X-Ray Spex? Heck. That’s awesome.

    On the flip, I always find Bon Iver’s “Holocene” to be so affirming. When he sings “I was not magnificent” — that’s comforting to me, to think that in the grand scheme of things, I am such a small part of it all. And the universe is so large and grand and I exist within it. And —

    I am so not explaining myself well! Grack! Anyway, “Holocene” makes me feel victorious in a small, peaceful way. I don’t know.

    These may be too conventional for you, but I like “Everybody” by Ingrid Michaelson, “Say Hey (I Love You)” by Michael Franti, and “Hey Mama” by Matt Carney.

    Love the idea of a Victory mix. I’m going to have to make one for myself. Rock on.

    Awesome! This inspired me to make a playlist of all the acts I’ve seen live this year. My favorites have been:

    Gambit, This Town
    Hesta Prynn, Can We Go Wrong?
    Atomic Tom, Play That Dirty Girl
    Lion of Ido, New York City
    Neon Trees, Your Surrender
    The Limousines, Internet Killed the Video Star
    Bushwalla, I’ll Funk Your Brains Out
    Simple Math, Manchester Orchestra
    Barton Hollow, The Civil Wars
    Ryan Star, anything he’s ever done, ever

    Not able to see them live, but: The Spring Standards, Chicago

    2011 has been pretty cool, but I’m sure 2012 will top it.

    The Mountain Goats’ “This Year” was my anthem from Dec 2008 to Dec 2009. Hearing it brings me back to the worst time in my life, in a good peaceful way. It’s cathartic to see how far I have come from my life’s most painful moment.
