Monday Mixtape for 9/2/213: Labor Day Edition!!!

Well, I had finally gotten around to posting these on a weekly basis and then I up and go on vacation last week and screw it all up!  Don’t worry, though, I am back this week with some Labo(u)r Day listening for you guys on your (hopefully) day off! And for those who are wondering why I sometimes repeat artists in two, and sometimes even three, straight weeks, well, I don’t have a good explanation for that other than (a) I don’t know how many of these things I am going to do, so artists with lots of good songs will make multiple appearances and (b) sometimes I just get on a kick for a certain band or artist. Dig it?
