2021 Holiday Matinee Mixtape [updated for July]

Welcome to the 2021 Holiday Matinee Mixtape! This year, we’ll try something new and do away with monthly mixtape posts. We’ll still add new songs each month, and provide a full listing of songs/artists on this post. The big benefit here is all you’ll need to follow is one playlist on Apple Music or Spotify all year long. Let’s give this a go! We’ll even open up comments on this post so you can tell us your faves or share your finds.

Listen on: Apple Music | Spotify
