The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 60 (12.15.2018)

playlist - mixtape

Welcome back y’all.  It’s been an interesting week.  Work sucks (who actually likes their job anyway?) but I’ve been consoling myself by taking extra time in the mornings to take the train to work in lieu of driving.  It gives me time to listen to an album on the way there and an album on the way home, which when coupled with the cold winter air and exercise has been doing wonders for my moods.  It’s also helping immensely when it comes to categorizing my year end list.  I still took time to check out the new song from American Football though; I grew up a sad man from Illinois and I’ll die a sad man from Illinois.  Want to see what else I and my colleagues have been listening to?  Check the playlist below…

If ever. So I can talk about most of these! Shall we? Continue reading
