Summer lovin’, had me some jams!

I recommend all these tunes because apparently I can't stop playing 'em: here's a quick alphabetical assessments of what's been hummin' in my iPod on Metro the past few weeks! The Blank Tapes, "Coast To Coast" from the album Vacation A little Zombies-meets-Badfinger surf hippie flower power pop from this (not surprising) SoCal band. The Blank […]

Sub Pop takes over Seattle {7/11-13}

It's late summer and I have been listening to many refreshing albums, as the world heats up more than ever. And now, it's time for the Fall releases to come in, a smattering of which are below among a multi-artist round-up of what has been soundtracking my daily toil, night terrors, and lovely bits of […]
