Happy Summer!

Summer is FINALLY here…after a really long winter and a miserable spring, I’m more than ready for 90+ degree temps and 100% humidity. I really need to move to an island.

Although summer doesn’t officially start for a few weeks, I’ve been hard at work on the Summer Mix and it’s finally ready to share.

If you’re not into reading the liner notes (which you should be for this one, just saying), this Mix marks a bit of a milestone: 1,000 songs shared in Krissie Mixes. *insert confetti and noisemakers here*

While I’ve moved on from burning hundreds of CDs and keeping the post office in business with mailing them out, making the “Mix” is still my favorite thing to do. It’s always been my goal to help people find new music that speaks to them, so if you find something new that hits your ears just right, I’d love to hear about it.

Anyway…thanks for listening for all these years, you guys. You’re the best.

Happy summer!

The 2018 Spring Krissie Mix

Well, this one’s been a long time coming.

I’m only 8 days late getting this out the door for the season, which isn’t too bad. But you should know that I originally intended to put it out in January as a second Winter Mix. So, because that didn’t happen, the Spring Mix is a little longer than usual.

Enjoy the roller coaster ride this playlist will take you on. I recommend cocktails on a patio while listening. Happy Spring!

Get the liner notes here, if you’re into them.

The 2017 Fall Winter Mix

Oh, hey there, folks. Happy merry holidays, everyone!

It’s been a hot second since I put out a Mix. This one’s been brewing for almost half a year now, so I guess it’s about time to put it out into the world. So here it is, my Christmas/Hannukah/Whatever-holiday-you-celebrate gift to you, my 2017 Fall Winter Mix.

Yeah, I’ve been a slacker and this one is a combination of two seasons. Sorry about that. It’s always hard to hit publish when it’s been so long since I started, but I hope that you’ll find a new artist to love among these 30 songs, anyway.

If you’re into reading my rambles about why I love these tracks, you can download my liner notes here.

I do love to hear from you guys if you fall in love with a particular track, or if a song leads you to discover a new band. Plus, who doesn’t love getting messages from friends (or, as has happened before, total strangers who are now amongst my dearest friends … *ahem, Libby and Fred*)? Either way, you know what to do.

The 2017 Summer Mix

unnamedHey guys, Happy 4th of July.

Although it’s a bit belated, the 2017 Summer Mix is FINALLY ready for your ears. Two hours of songs to make you laugh, cry, and feel alive.

Believe it or not, at one point, it was up to something like 42 songs, so I have done a LOT of editing (although the liner notes sure don’t make it seem that way…they are forever long).

Hope you’re doing all the summer things. It is the best season, after all, isn’t it?

It’s a Doozy: The Spring 2017 Mix

Well, so much for my goal of writing weekly. But, I’m still doing better than last year!

Spring arrived on Monday, and just in time, I’ve finished up my 2017 Spring Mix. Gotta tell ya guys, there’s a SLEW of good music coming out right now. I forced myself to keep this to 30 songs…It was tough.

The notes are lengthy, so if you’ve got a couple of minutes, download them and try to make sense of my rambling.

Happy listening…and happy spring!
