The good news is that the new Mockingbird website is almost here! By “almost” I mean it’ll launch before the end of the year. You’re going to love it. The bad news is that these playlists — for a variety of reasons — won’t survive the transition. But I doubt I’ll be able to resist posting quarterly ones on Spotify at least. Just follow @davidzahl1 there for updates. Fair warning: This month’s list is a little sappy, seeing as it’s mostly a soundtrack to this post.
