[MIX] A Burning Ear Christmas 2010 – Three Servings of Cheer

It’s only a week until Christmas!!

This years mix almost didn’t happen because I thought I wouldn’t have time to dig up good tracks but then they just started popping up and a lot of them were very cool. I grabbed the best and threw them together here for a holiday mix in three parts. First get funky with the dance party starters then slip into some original X-mas tunes by artists old and new and close it off with some reworked classics. I hope you all enjoy these jams and have yourselves a kick ass holiday season!

Mike Posner and The Brain Trust are definitely Cooler Than Me

you don’t know the way that you look when your steps make that much noise

Mike Posner and The Brain Trust – Cooler Than Me (ft. Big Sean)

When someone drops me a comment recommending an artist its hard to tell whether its a real heads-up or some loser peddling his Creed tribute band. Not one to be a hater without good reason, I set out to come up with one, after all the mixtape is free from iTunes. Trowing it on my iPod and heading out the door I had one the most fun cross-town walks ever, a huge smile plastered across my bouncing head. “Cooler Than Me” (above) is the perfect ode to the too-cool-for-school mean girls we have all met. And how can you listen to The Fray inspired biting “Still Not Over You” (below) and not grin? So anyway, who is this Mike Posner? Clearly, he is white, but don’t lump him in with Eminem or Asher Roth. At 21 and a Duke University junior, he leaves the whiny-whitey act at home and brings straight smokey soul and tight production. Did I mention he uses a live backing band, The Brain Trust? Yeah. Hot. The A Matter Of Time mixtape is the first mixtape I can listen listen to without skipping anything. And its free, so go get it. Seriously.

Mike Posner and The Brain Trust – Still Not Over You (ft. Eric Holljes)

This track is not on A Matter Of Time but is the best rip at Kanye/beer-goggles tribute ever. Ahhh man, its hard to type when you’re laughing.
