The Weekly Mixtape: 7/1/11

Written by Music, The Weekly Mixtape

For this week’s mixtape, Kelly gives you songs from more of her favorite 2011 releases.

Back in March, I put together a mixtape with songs from my favorite albums that had been released in the first few months of the year.  Since then, quite a few more albums have been released that I’ve fallen in love with, so I figured it was high time to share another “favorites of 2011, so far” mixtape with you. Many of these songs would also make a great addition to any 4th of July weekend playlist you might be putting together. Enjoy!
