Just like this time one month ago (hello again consistency!), I've picked 5 songs each from my Songdrop collections of Youtube, Soundcloud, & Bandcamp gems (although… I've since discovered Minilogs as an even better option for stockpiling Bandcamp gems), I've assembled them all in an order that sounds good to these ears, and I've embedded all 15 songs in the player below (or if you prefer, you can jump over on Songdrop, or you can even download the Songdrop app and listen on that little computer in your pocket that you use to screen phone calls from your mom).
So press play on the kick ass Shakey Graves opener (I know I just posted that video, but come one, who doesn't have time to listen to that again?) and don't go looking for anything else to listen to until B.E. Godfrey has let you know who it was (hint: it was the wind).
And while you're listening, remember to remember: music makes all our lives a bit more bearable, but the continued making of that music requires all of us listeners to give a little love back (whether that be by buying the artist a metaphorical pint, turning your friends on to them, or even just letting the artist know you dig… anything beyond secret appreciation goes a long way).
