Jennifer Herrema

1 Nov

I have a long standing crush on Jennifer Herrema. So it makes me happy to see her all partnered up with lovely babe Kurt Vile for this “Before They Make Me Run” Stones’ cover. Give a listen on Pitchfork.

I haven’t given her new project, Black Bananas, much attention yet – but you should right here.

In addition to being such a sweet dude, Sean Spellman of Quiet Life is really great to listen to.

Whiskey Wednesdays

The Best Sleepover

15 Aug

So you know that thing about summer that makes us in love with the NW? big trees, clear stars, bright sun, cold rivers, friends, breeze, green, meadows, forests, fresh food? Helsing Junction Sleepover gives you (us) all of that – plus hundreds of friends and 35 bands. It’s so good. Event info here. I hope to see you there!

Adam Baz of Brainstorm did a mini interview with Jade Ajani of Helsing Junction Farms yesterday on the steps of Ms. Maggie Jones’ parents’ house. It was fun. Listen here:
