It’s March! What the hell!? Life is seemingly at a standstill yet the unstoppable march of time continues on. The time keeps passin’ and the tunes don’t stop rockin’! We’ve picked up some incredible tunes last month and we are beyond excited to get into the nitty gritty! We even managed to get this one out before entries for our March compilation close (which is this Saturday)! Very exciting stuff!
Raddest AND Baddest Tapes:
This month’s baddest and raddest tape was our only submission this month. It was submitted by a local exchanger. This is a bad ass mix of rock and roll, southern flair, and folksy sensibilities!

February was an interest month for music to put it mildly…. Listen folks, we would like to remind everyone that our monthly mixes serve as a kind of snap-shot of this moment in time. We open our ears and take note of the great songs that find us throughout the month. We don’t try to intentionally make any kind of mix, we simply let life send us what we need to hear. As you can see this month celebrates different styles and isn’t bound to any particular genre. We only feel the need to reiterate this point to our loyal readers/listeners because we value your trust. We would hate to lose your trust by selecting a zydeco number, but hey don’t blame us, blame life!
