The Holiday Mixtape Project, Vol. 2

Okay, so here it is, the second installment of the Holiday Mixtape. I decided to call it the "Holiday" mixtape rather than just a "Christmas" mixtape because "Christmas" just sounded too exclusive, and the track by Princeton on this volume has a more, well, lets just say broader appeal. I think you guys will appreciate this mix, as it has some really solid tunes. Some of you may recognize a few of the tracks from last years mix, but as I said before they're are the cream of the crop, no filler this Christmas...well, at least I'm trying to weed out all of the filler. And you Sufjan fans will be pleased to know that he makes an appearance on this mix as well, which caused Kozma to quietly roll his eyes in disgust. Whether you're a Sufjan fan or not, there's a little something for everyone on this mix, in fact, it may be the strongest Holiday mix yet, as every song is of top-notch quality, it even has possibly my favorite Christmas jam of all time, The Christmas Song by the Raveonettes, so, if anything, grab that.

1. Sufjan Stevens - Put the Lights on the Tree
2. Princeton - Where's My Christmas Morning?
3. Ron Sexsmith - Maybe This Christmas
