TCR 2011 Mixtape (Lisa’s Picks): Side A

You guys. I made you a mixtape. And let’s get this straight – I’m not saying these are the Best Songs From A Critical Standpoint of 2011 Northwest releases, they’re just favorites that I want to share if you haven’t already discovered them this year. If you wanna get real about it, 2012 has a lot to live up to.

Tune in tomorrow for more songs in case you decide you hate these and need more to choose from!


Gifts and the Raft – The Cave Singers: Get in your car, drive till you’re nowhere near any traffic, then put this song on. “And God bless ya”

Blackout – Pickwick: This band even got a guy who was painted and acting like a statue dancing at Folklife this year. There’s a good reason why.

The Words Of The Revelator – Bryan John Appleby: I cannot express how much I love the sound of banjo. Thank you B.J.A. for bringing this song and more banjo into my life.

Tides – Ravenna Woods: This band gives you so much to listen to. I love everywhere this song goes, and if that doesn’t make sense then just listen. [See Also: TCR Episode #14 with Ravenna Woods]

Complimenting Parts – Campfire OK: If you’ve been recently dumped, maybe skip this one for a month or six. Otherwise, full speed ahead on the love train ya’ll!
