This week I wanted to introduce a new feature into the posting of Friday Mixes. Everything more or less should remain the same (little blurb, picture, then details), but I want to add a list of featured artists to this and future posts. I frequently forget the names of artists and honestly, I hate that. There's no way to remember them all, sure, but at least this way I am specifically paying more attention to who writes the music I discover. I remember certain artists better than others, but I would prefer to remember more. So let's get into it!
Courtney Barnett - Everybody Here Hates You
Spring Offensive - Hengelo
Margaret Glaspy - Parental Guidance
Snail Mail - Heat Wave
Wolf Alice - Bros
D.D Dumbo - Walrus
Gillbanks - Anxious?
Sunflower Bean - Rock & Roll Heathen
Circa Waves - Be Somebody Good
"Backstreet Anthems" aims to tap into those childhood feelings of searching for Independence while remembering your friends, heartbreaks and struggles experienced along the way. It embraces a kind of garage rock band sound throughout most of the mix, occasionally showing influences from dreampop or shoegazing. Emotions litter this mix. If you want to feel wholesome, held or understood, give this one a listen.
