    Happy to see local boy Dan Wilson in your new mix & thought I’d share another MN boy with you, Jeremy Messersmith. One of my favorites from the past year is this song Violet http://jeremymessersmith.bandcamp.com/track/violet

    I love Lazy Bones from the same CD too.

    I look forward to these posts every week.

    You should definitely take a listen to the Seattle based band Cataldo and their album Signal Flare. Its been on permanent rotation for the last six months.

    hooray for checking things off and for the super fun journey to getting to that check off point!
    here’s something I learned recently (a few hours ago). Checking things off can be really amazing and really scary all at the same time. What’s with that?
    AND. I adore Rilo Kiley.

  • Rachel Says:

    Oh yay! So happy you liked it too! I listen to Dan Wilson’s whole album Free Life all the time.

    My latest “new” find is Ike Reilly. Particularly the song Hip Hop Thighs.

  • Nellie Says:

    I *so* love these posts.
    I wish I could compile all the songs into a playlist… a project for some lazy Saturday afternoon, for sure.
    Thanks, Maggie!

    These posts are great! Here are two of my favorite bands (so great live!):
    Yonder Mountain String Band “How ‘Bout You”
    String Cheese Incident “Joyful Sound”

    Just came across a video of Stagger & Sway’s “Sam Bond’s Garage”. Mike Last is my cousin’s husband and haven’t seen them live yet, but love their sound.
