#0102 – Happy Go Lucky

Hey, it’s time for a regular ol’ mix. Happy sounding songs. Guitars. New music. No big whoop. Something snappy. Something you can dance in your chair to, or ride your bike, or go for a walk since the weather’s getting nice out. Yeah, I’m talking to you!

#0091 – The Mossback Mix

Play

[Kevin] Winter’s a great time for a mix of northwest bands. These mostly span Washington and Oregon. Not all songs are what they seem, so before you write something off, give it a listen.

I started off just trying to round up enough Pacific Northwest bands to make a mix, but I ended up with way too many original, insanely good songs and got turned on to a bunch of new bands in the process.  Hope you do too.
