This sometimes happens when life intervenes, and if we're being honest there's a lot of that that's been happening lately. Shane's been touring, Mark's been on the road for work (I suppose that's touring too, of sorts), and Ryan and Kevin have been juggling schedules. We figured the perfect antidote to the layoff was a brand new mixtape show, and no better excuse than a re-examination of 2019's best.Some of the tracks here are to be expected (Billie Eilish is clearly having a moment), and Clairo's more recent work follows her video with 45 million downloads, but we also mixed in some of the Front Bottoms (which gave us occasion to riff on old band names), Soccer Mommy makes an appearance with chops, and who knew The Raconteurs were at it again. Brendon Benson, I suppose.All in all mixtape shows are a breezy way to get back into things, take the pulse, talk a little current events. And remember why, even if we're lagging, great tracks remain timeless.
