[In an attempt to keep my few readers abreast of what I am listening to, The Monthly Mix Series is a monthly post featuring music that found its way into my ears over the course of the past month.]
While I didn't blog as much as I would have liked this past month, I did see and hear lots of great music. The Menomena show at the Echo was wonderful as was Elvis Perkins a few weeks later (at this point, I don't think they guy can do me wrong). I am officially obsessed with the new Andrew Bird. I also finally got around to listening to the new Albert Hammond solo project and actually bought The Replacements' "Let it Be" which is great too. Throw in some new stuff (The National, Wilco, Voxtrot, Neil Young, DNTEL, Modest Mouse) and some classics (The Gerbils, Dylan, Camera Obscura, Destroyer) and you have my mix of the month. Enjoy.
