I downloaded all of this mix last week, but left the notes for last.  As most of you know, I lost my sister-in-law (and Noah's aunt, of course) on Monday.  So as we get ready for a funeral in Baltimore this weekend, finishing up the notes - particularly on each song - kind of fell off the priority scale.  The mix will have to stand on it's own, I guess.  There is no theme - just good tunes (in my opinion) that I've been gathering the past few months.  And, aside from Beck, Angel, Sturgill and Lord Huron, I think all names new to Burnmix.  Enjoy.
