[In an attempt to keep my few readers abreast of what I am listening to, The Monthly Mix Series is a monthly post featuring music that found its way into ears of the course of the past month.]
This mix is coming a bit late and I truly apologize for that. I have been a bad blogger recently and have a list of things that I have been meaning to write, but just haven't gotten around to it.
June's mix is sprinkled with some old classics and some new gems. After hearing a great piece on Arthur Alexander on Fresh Air, I had to include Anna. I finally got into Emitt Rhodes and have been thoroughly enjoying all of his albums, so expect some more Emitt Rhodes in the future. The National show at the El Rey was incredible, so had to throw something on there from Boxer. Still loving Wilco, especially those VW ads. Myriad Harbor is pretty much one of my favorite things so far this year and Bobby Bare Jr's cover of Where is My Mind is also pretty beautiful. Toss in some more local stuff (The Little Ones, Tandemoro, The Switch, Dntel) and you have this month's mix. I hope you enjoy it.
