I’m somewhere in Chicago, most likely sleeping, but I wanted to be sure you had a Mixcast this week. This week’s theme revolves around duettes, or someone making a guest appearance on an album. I always think it’s fun when someone unexpected shows up on an album and performs with someone I enjoy, and these songs are perfect examples.
I wasn’t able to make a back cover for this week’s Mixcast, but I’ll definitely try and make one for next week, so don’t think I’m ignoring your pleas! I hope you enjoy the Mixcast and check back next week for more fun music.
Here’s this week’s tracklist:
