  1. Flo Morrissey and Matthew E. White / Look At What The Light Did Now

    Love this track. The voices together, the playing, the lyrics. It's a cover that is—to me—a million times better than the original. The bass player in this recording is incredible, just all over the place. This song was my first intro to Spacebomb Records. A studio/houseband from Richmond, VA. They figure into this song and two others on this mix.

  3. Lo Moon / Loveless

  6. Haley Blais / Small Foreign Faction

    The self harmonies towards the end seal this one for me.

  11. Natalie Prass / Short Court Style

    Dig the guitar and bass riffs throughout, especially under the chorus. And then the faux Snoop Dogg synth later in the song. There is a mini-bridge jam that I was was WAY longer, this band can play! Turns out this song and her upcoming album were produced by Matthew E White (see song one), and the same band that plays on that song, is the one here.

    The last song to make it on the mix, just released last week. Love HGM, and this is a team up with the aforementioned Spacebomb Records band. The bassist who blew me away on the "Light" song earlier is the producer of this track. Great layered sound, again, these players are spot on. The drumming fills over the last chorus are awesome.

  15. Cass McCombs / Harmonia

    Spent a week in Florida in February and I spent a lucky hour in a hammock with headphones and a cocktail. For some reason, I was humming this song, but couldn't place the name of it. Took about 10 minutes of googling various lyric memories to find it. I love the instrumental jam in the middle. Love the repetitive bass heartbeat.

  16. Iron & Wine / Call It Dreaming
