Mixtape: November

November Mixtape · via Spotify

Ahhh, thank you Spotify Radio for existing! This month has been all about The Shins radio channel for listening to whilst I’m at work. It’s great because it plays me songs I like, but I don’t have to go to the effort of making playlists or choosing what I want to listen to that day. Plus, I’ve discovered a few new tunes this way, like When U Love Somebody by Fruit Bats which is a definite contender for current favourite song.

A week or so ago I managed to nab a couple of tickets for the Foo Fighters gig at Murrayfield in the summer. They’ve been a regular on my playlists ever since One by One came out (just looked this up, and that was 12 YEARS AGO?!) so I’m very much looking forward to seeing them live for the first time. I used to be such an avid gig-goer but this has fallen to the wayside over the last few years – I’m determined to make more of an effort and find out what’s on rather than hearing about a gig after it’s happened and thinking “aww, I should’ve gone to that”.
