Hey, hey, hey! It’s February and we’re thrilled to say that we’ve done it! We got one out on time! A day early even! We promised you that we’d be getting back on track and this time (to even our surprise) we meant it!
February has been an interesting month, with a few days and surprises left for us. Our family of music oriented projects have all been quite busy. Which is a blessing as we have embarked on the journey of being a full-time creative. If you like this blog, please check out our other stuff: Oak Honest Records, O’K and the Night Crew, and Derek O’Kanos. This Saturday our label will be hosting a singer-songwriter showcase in Brattleboro, VT with another similar event happening in Norwood, MA on 3/26. If you’re in the Northeastern United States, aka New England, we’ve got some stuff going down somewhere near you!
Now, on with the stuff!
February’s Raddest Tape came from a repeat offen…..exchanger with a nice blend of tunes both familiar and obscure. This tape feels like a set from your favorite radio DJ full of things you want to hear and things you NEED to hear! As you might expect, this bad boy defies genre oriented restrictions in successful pursuit of a continually listenable flow! We like exchanging and chances are that you do to! You’re reading this ain’t ya? Be sure to head over to Green Circle Trading Post to trade cards, tapes, and more!
