Favorite Songs of 4th 1/4 of 2009

My favorite songs from the last quarter of the year 2009. Uneven but beloved as always - some bands seem to show up way too many times on this disc and over the year (God Help The Girl, Camera Obscura, The xx) while other songs/bands ended up not making it at all (Monsters of Folk, iLiKETRAiNS, Tegan & Sara, more Avett Brothers...). I'm not sure if I'll manage to put together a smaller "Favorites of 2009" Mix - but some of those missed songs might end up sneaking in there.

Until then, here is the cover and the list of songs for the "4th 1/4 of 2009" Mix.
