Emma's Playlist: My Strange Bedfellows Indie-Folk-Pop Party TunesI'm definitely of the "throw some great albums in a playlist and hit Random" mindset when it comes to party tunes. Much like my attitude toward dinner party dishes, I figure that if I put enough good music in the mix, it will all come out just fine. Which is how I end up with such strange musical bedfellows as The Heartless Bastards with Mumford & Sons, or Andrew Bird right after Cloud Cult. But hey, once the wine is open and the snacks come out, it's all good.

I aim for a blend of highs and lows in my music mix: slow and steady crooners along with perky upbeat artists who can bring a little head-bopping to the room. Like Chris's mix, my playlist is an ever-evolving thing of new finds and old favorites. I find this also works really well for a party scene — the familiar songs help people relax and feel comfortable while the new songs add some energy.

For this mix today, I picked a favorite tune from each of the albums I have in my current party playlist. Enjoy!
