Finally back to mixed media. Our Spotify playlist features some fine tunes for your listening pleasure and our vid is a (very) old-school jam that is sure to brighten your day.


“Save Me” – Fernando. A pretty fabulous rootsy track from the Argentina-born, Portland-based artist. REM alum Peter Buck helped out on his latest album, and this track.

“The Only One” – the boy i used to be. These cats are from Portsmouth, England, UK. This song sounds equally British (a little Madchester, a little Shoegaze) and California (the jangly main riff).

“Anxious Animal” – Syvia. I’ve been listening to – and loving – this song for about a month, but just finally spun Syvia’s entire EP earlier this week. It’s fabulous, and very reminiscent of early (and great) Metric. There’s a little Mic Fleetwood in the drums, too.

“Fill In The Blank” – Car Seat Headrest. This song has been out for a month or so, but the album just hit (digitally) today. I’m listening to it right now. I may think there’s a better song than this when I’m done, but it’s still a pretty good introduction to the band.


“Ride Your Pony” – Lee Dorsey

My main man Erick R shared this vid last Friday. It’s pretty much 1000% great. From the song itself, to the dancing, to the rather muted response from the crowd, to the fact there are five (5!!!) guys holding saxophones on the stage.
