I’m baaaaaaaack. Thanks to Josh for covering for me while I was away. I spent a great two weeks back in the icy winter of my home, Chicago, IL. I got to spend the holidays with all my family, catch up with some old friends from high school and college, eat and drink myself into oblivion, and watch my California-Born-and-Raised partner’s face light up when some unexpected snow flurries blew in. It was exactly the kind of recharge I needed after the trash fire that was 2018. I feel ready to get back in the saddle again, and what better way to do that than share all the good stuff I and my cohorts have been jamming over our respective holiday-time adventures? Check below for a list of tunes to whip your year into shape.
