My interest in writing about music has been re-invigorated recently by a number of things. I think part of the reason is that I haven’t been going to as many concerts and thus I’m not suffering music fatigue. I think that another part is that the music I’ve been exposed to this year has been pretty good and has kept my interest. One last thing that I’m going to attribute to having a positive effect is that I’m having a good deal of enjoyment in sharing offline. So with all those factors and other reasons, I sat down and thought about creating a new mix to share.

Oz is the mix that I created. It’s not necessarily reflecting the happy state that has re-invigorated me but it is definitely including the good of the new (and some older) songs. I hope that it exposes you to some songs that you have not heard before and that you like it. If you do, feel free to share it.
