Mixtape: The 30 Songs I Digged Most In 2016

Over the past few months, I have received a bunch of feedback from readers and listeners requesting that I extend The 30 Songs I Digged Most In 2017 concept to previous years.  As a result, I plan to release a series of mixtapes cataloguing my favorite tunes dating back to 2012 (the year this blog first fired up).

2016 was full of some pretty incredible music.  There was stellar rock and roll from artists like Kevin Morby and Parquet Courts.  There were new classics from Hayes Carll and Michael Kiwanuka.  There was the last recording by Leonard Cohen and the first by Margo Price.

Here they all are; mixed in an order that sounds good to me.

I hope you dig it.
