MMT Winter 2017

MMT Winter 2017

On the mix below, you’ll hear songs about failure (#2), the apocalypse (#4, and arguably #14), getting kicked out of a bar (#20), hometowns (#7), the loss of American manufacturing jobs (#22), and social isolation (#15), among others.

As always, if you find something you like, please support the artists — buy the album (or at least the song, ya cheap shit), go to a show, buy a shirt, and help spread the good word about them.

The cover art was again done by the fine folks over at Faithless Street, a music message board full of folk and americana and a whole lot of random weirdness.  Special thanks to “highlife”, a person of clearly exceptional intelligence and taste, for coming up with the idea.
