My Favorite Daytrotter Recordings of (the second half of) 2012

If you’ve hung around here for any amount of time (and if you haven’t, welcome!) you know that I love Daytrotter. Sure, the fact it’s based just across the river from where I grew up is part of the charm, but mostly it’s because it posts unbelievable, unique sessions with artists I love, and introduces me to artists I soon will, on a daily basis. Below (in no particular order) are 31 of my favorite songs from sessions posted in the second half of 2012 (listen to the first half mix here)- you’ll recognize some of them from around here, others will be brand new…all are wonderful.

If you aren’t yet a member, take a listen to what you’re missing out on below and then head over to Daytrotter and grab an annual membership for yourself (it’s $2  a month… you can afford that, promise). Enjoy.
