2015, it’s good to see you!
Welcome to a brand new year of Trail Mix, everyone! 2014 was a spectacular year here in our little corner of the BRO website, where the best in Americana and indie music awaits you. If this month’s mix is any indication, the next twelve months will be just as fantastic as the last.
Worth noting in this January mix are tracks off of three outstanding releases from Omnivore Recordings, a label dedicated to revisiting tunes from the past and reconnecting audiences with bygone artists. Trail Mix has featured a number of Omnivore rereleases in recent months, including tracks from Camper Van Beethoven, Big Star, and Game Theory. This month, the mix has two tunes from Jellyfish, a glam rock band who caught fleeting fame in the early 1990s, and Ron Nagle, whose record Bad Rice is now available on compact disc for the first time since its early 1970s release.
Trail Mix is also excited to feature “Me, Liquor & God,” a brand new tune from Night Beds, a Colorado indie rock outfit that now calls Nashville home, and the latest from Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, one of our favorite bands.
Also on the January mix are tunes from Happy Fangs, The Amazing, Vision Fortune, New Line, Sturgeon City, and many more.
The Trail Mix blog also has some good stuff cooking for this month. Stay tuned for interviews with Sam Lewis, Davie Smith & The Untamed, and Tom Baker of Packway Handle Band, who are releasing a record with Jim White.
As always, stream and download the mix until you just can’t stand it anymore. Then stream it again. Tell a friend. Tell the irritating dude that sits two cubicles down. And, of course, seek out an album or two from these incredible artists.
