The time has come to ramp up training for the STP (Seattle to Portland bike ride). Last weekend, I took a ride out toward La Conner along my normal route, which takes me down McLean. This particular road is on the path toward the famous Skagit Valley Tulips, and being in the middle of the Tulip Festival, traffic was anything but light.
It’s satisfying, passing a line of 30+ cars, stopped due to heavy traffic. You don’t get that much in the country. On with the music…
Receiving the Letters and Poppet split cassette in the mail last week, paired with the discovery of local Anacortes band Motorbikes and reading about the early days of K Records in Stephen Tow’s The Strangest Tribe, the stage was set for a full-on lo-fi playlist for my late April radio show on KSVR and KSVU.
I decided to do a “Double Dip” and play two songs in a row by either the same band or off the same album. Of course, being me, I play around with the lo-fi theme loosely. The bold listings below direct link to mp3s for sampling, or to related articles that have mp3s for the same purpose.
