Raise your headphones with me to more sonic innovation, more boundary-breaking; more high defintion, low definition, and redefinition; more experimentation and enchantment; more strong hooks, horns, keys, kicks, and vox; more risks, less fear; more smiles, hugs, laughs, and joy; more life, more living, and more good times.

Thanks for reading and listening. Here’s to 2013.
