Trail Mix July 2013: Free Music Playlist

Trail Mix began with a simple mission – the exposure of kick ass independent roots musicians flying below the radar of our readership.  This month’s mix – perhaps more than any other month to date – best satisfies that mission.

Trail Mix is lucky, on a regular basis, to feature nationally recognized artists who have achieved large measures of critical acclaim.  But those lesser known artists, the musicians and bands looking for a break or that glimmer of recognition, are just as exciting to us, and this month’s mix is rich with them.

This month’s mix serves to remind us that there are so many great, great bands out there looking to be noticed.  We are happy to do what we can here at Trail Mix to shine a light on this collection of fantastic talent.

In lieu of a typically wordy intro, we encourage you to just dig in.  Stream it.  Download it.  Wait for it to grab you, because it will.  Once you have those songs bouncing around your head, reach out and buy the discs; they will be just as good as what we have featured here.  Promise.
