The Compilation Compilation
Jennifer’s Favorites 1998–2010

In the years between mixtapes and streaming music services, compilation CDs were the way to share music. It was during this era that I lovingly crafted yearly mixes to spread the word about my favorite new bands to friends and family. Taken together, the CD project is a testament to my ongoing love of music, graphic design, and community. The playlists, artwork, and liner notes compiled in this book provide a snapshot of the indie music scene throughout the ‘00s as well a record of my path through single life, marriage, home ownership, professional endeavors, and motherhood.
