[Kevin] A mix of insanely good northwest bands, spanning Washington and Oregon. Nothing heavy.
[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.

HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE DOGGIE! Another country mix. We all pretty much blew our minds out with our last batch of mixes, so with Kevin’s last mix of covers and this country mix, you can probably tell that we’ve taken a breather before we work up the next bouillabaisse of pure unadulterated awesomeness. In other news, we’ve got some ideas to get this podcast thingy more involved. Details are forthcoming but if you like the shows, you’re going to love what we’re cooking up for June.
In the meantime, keep your 10-10 on the side and watch out for those Illinois Gumball Machines.
