So this year, I don’t have a big-ass mp3 download for you. You know, that felt like a lot of work to track down all the itsy bitsy individual tracks and, lets be honest, does anyone even remember how to mp3 anymore? If not vinyl, streaming is the only way to go these days.

I’m not normally a music video guy but, featured above, the ridiculously adorable July Talk video (track 4 on the list). Love it.
