Weekend Mix: Nov. 26-28

As great as it is to spend a few days surrounded by family, Thanksgiving weekend isn’t exactly free of ita annoyances. Crying, barking and mid-day snores can each wear a person’s nerves pretty thin.

Add them all together and it’s time to sneak away for a while.

If getting out of the house is an impossibility, grab a pair of headphones and slip away with another great Weekend Mix, courtesy of our friends at The Tale of The Tape.

This week, TTOTT has put together ten tracks that are guaranteed to drown out the sounds of any baby, dog or creepy, couch-hogging uncle.

If all of the above is completely irrelevant and you’re actually home alone, turn it up to 11 and enjoy the weekend.
