NEW SONG: It’s Real, by Wild Ones

wildonestheband:

Stream “It’s Real” from our upcoming full length on SoundCloud

I saw this band at the Doug Fir opening for Rad City, and I think they’re really swell.

Some weekend listening for you! This mixtape is full of bands I have recently seen live, or am about to. Take a listen and let me know how you like it. As always, get in touch if you want a physical copy. :) Hope you enjoy.

Saw Radiation City at the Doug Fir recently. They played a bunch of new stuff off their upcoming EP and it was fantastic. This band puts on such a good show! You can tell they really just love playing music. Also have to give them big kudos from taking a show with a canceled headliner and still turning it into a rowdy, dancey sold out show! Their new video for one of their upcoming songs was just released by IFC yesterday too — will post that as well!

The sudden snow inspired me to make a wintery mixtape yesterday.

Mixed Tape: Mondays at Home

Made another mixed tape for y’all. This one is all Pacific NW alt-country and indie folk; inspired by the Sera Cahoone, Jackrabbit, & Sons of Warren Oates show I went to last week.

As always, if you want a physical copy hit me up and I’ll mail one out to you.

 On Being a Girl in a Band 
Why do I take such offense in bands who have a  lead singer who doesn’t play an instrument? And why is that offense so  much greater when the lead singer is female, and the only girl in the  band? Is that ingrained sexism? Or is it the perpetuation of the  way-too-played out stereotype, that the only thing a girl is good for in  a band is singing and being a sex symbol? Is this my own frustration as  a girl in a band? Is this insecurity of my own sexual desireability and  show-woman-ship?
I feel like I dealt with this stereotype more when I was the only  girl in the band. When I was often asked if I was the lead singer and it  was assumed that Rob was the only set of brains in the music and  lyrics. Now that our drummer is also female, we’re assumed on arrival to  be bucking a trend. It’s not that the stereotype of girl-in-band was  ever malicious, but it’s nice to not have to deal with it personally  right now..

Important musings! (emphasis mine)
ex;oh; to Jessie and Rob (and Leaf Eater!) always (whose covers of Ben Gibbard songs will forever make me BAWL).

Living in a van down by the river.... by Radiation City — Kickstarter

owlsandelephants:

Listen to these guys in my previous post, and check out where I first mentioned them here.

Help support their tour by buying their album for only $5 on Kickstarter! You really need to see these guys live. :)

2 days left and only $75 to go to reach their goal! Their album is really amazing, and $5 is a steal! How can you say no when they are so close??
