Back in December Suburban Home Records put out a mixtape. When you ordered it, paying only shipping and handling, you got five copies of the damn thing! Virgil’s idea was for you to give them out to your friends and it was a great idea. Well the gang over there has just released Volume 2 of the mixtape series with the same deal. I went with Priority Mail and spent $5.01 to get five copies of the CD. Not only does Suburban Home put out great music they are really promoting their artists. You can stream most of their released on the site so you aren’t buy site unseen, so to speak, and they give away music to get their artists noticed. Couple all that with cool stuff like shot glasses, coozies, and maybe even oven mitts (who knows, maybe Virgil will like the idea) and you have what think is the coolest label around.
So with the released of the second installment in their mixtape series SBHR has asked us blogger type folks to help get the word out about the mixtapes, offer the first one for download, and pretty much pimp this all we can. Since they give us so much, even on top of my Suburban Home For Life membership, I thought it would be cool to offer the Raisin’ Hell and Livin’ Cheap (Volume 1) for you all to listen to and download. So here it is, without further ado…
Enjoy…and go order the second volume right now. You won’t regret it. And while you are there make sure to shell out the jack and get Tim Barry‘s new release 28th and Stonewall.
Some days are just rough and some folks have a hard row to hoe. This is one for one of those days. Grab the headphones, dig the whiskey out of your bottom drawer, hunker down and press play. It’ll all be over soon.
Another slightly delayed Monday Mix. This one has some tracks from folks I hadn’t posted before and that have been growing on me. I am kind of stoked about this because I think feel is right. It’s all downers but sometimes that just what a body needs to get through and it’s what I was in the mood for yesterday when I put it together. So there you have it boys and girls. Yet another Monday Mix.
