This Week’s Top 11 Playlist – 13 January 2012

Putting together a mixtape can be a tricky thing, especially if you’re dealing with really, really new tunes. Do they all go together?  Is the flow correct?  Is one style over- or under-represented?  And will anyone like it?  Not sure.  But that’s the mystery of the mixtape.  

Here’s this week’s selection of songs that caught my attention. Use the player in the right-hand column or just click on the link below.
