26 Letters, 26 Songs

Boredom can sometimes go a long way. That's the place where this particular mixtape comes from. I get pretty antsy when I'm not being bombarded with new music or when there aren't as many concerts to check out. Which leads me to this -- both random and a mixtape, so it fits the criteria of the blog perfectly. No explanation necessary other than this being the product of sitting around with nothing to do other than coming up with 26 songs I like (all off the top of my head), beginning with each letter of the alphabet. A surprisingly more cohesive set of songs than what I anticipated; unsurprisingly it's also a bit gothy here and there.
