Mixtape: Six Months Later

Way behind on Ray Ray's birthday mixtape this year. It was due back in March but the pressures of finishing a Quantitative Methods course, preparing for the State Department Oral Exam (which I am happy to announce I passed last month with my best score yet), and entering this year’s installment of The Neverending Wedding Season, this kept falling to the back burner.

The upshot is -- in that time, I’ve come across some new tunes that might have otherwise had to wait until this year’s Christmas mixtape, which I should probably get started on now. As always, some good discoveries here, but I’ve also reverted to throwing in a tune from some favorites. You’ll notice The Police are back. ‘Bout time, I say.

Check out what’s currently flowing from the Bose system at home. As always, you can find this playlist on our Spotify station.
