Featuring the likes of a couple bands we could not recommend more: THE MIGS and CUMSTAIN. Fuzzy and loose, this is a compilation for the ages. These groups come from all over the map – most haven’t received the kind of attention they very much deserve.
Also on this tape: SON OF A GUN, LAUGHING LEAVES, HELLSHOVEL, REAL NUMBERS, TODAY’S HITS, HEAVY TIMES, LAZY, EL SUR, and UH BONES.

Props of the Day go to Today’s Hits! Yes, yes. The Rifles, a fantastic rock band, were played today on Today’s Hits, a satellite radio station that plays mostly shit mainstream music. So I’m listening to the likes of Taylor Swift and Adam Lambert at work when all of a sudden I hear… The Rifles! What has the world come to? For the better, for the better. I was in complete shock. I finally got to enjoy listening! I saw the Rifles back in September when they played to a crowd of about 70 (if that) at the Great Scott. Let’s just say there are far bigger bands I’ve seen than the Rifles that I could have guessed had a shot at being played. This was a nice surprise. The next song after “Great Escape” was “Beautiful Girls” by Sean Kingston.
