Greetings, excellent ones.
It’s been an interesting couple of days over here. Not bad, by any stretch, but we’re planning to mark a special Aloud milestone next month and looking in the rearview has left me feeling a little… well, you know that feeling you get when you eat a little too much candy, and then you each another few Kit-Kats on top of that? It feels something like that.
It hasn’t been all navel-gazing, though. We have been getting very amped up on some new music we’re working on. (Still figuring out the kinks with making it all work remotely, but aren’t we all I guess?)
But more on all that soon enough.
In the meantime, another semi-semi-weekly Mixtape is upon us. Lots of kickass new releases this week. A couple of these aren’t available on the Spotify playlist, but you owe it to yourself to spend the cash on it. (You should know the Bandcamp Friday drill by now: once a month—in this case, to-day, the wonderful souls at Bandcamp have elected to waive their cut of sales, meaning the artists receive 100% of whatever you pay ’em.)
Enough jibber-jabber. Playlist/links to purchase are below. Be good to each other.
PS: So you’ve already verified your voter registration (or registered if you hadn’t before). Now what? Well, friend, have you considered signing up to become a poll worker? I’ll be doing that myself later today. You should too!
