Regional playlist: New Orleans 1

When I got the idea for this series of playlists, I figured it’d be one longish playlist per city. After working on this one, it became clear that NOLA would take two or three. I don’t know if that’s because I know the city’s music so well or if it’s just that awesome, but enjoy my first set of music from New Orleans.

Regional playlist: Boston

Music from Boston

Haven’t been posting much for a while; just haven’t been FEELING it, you know? A chance conversation at work led me to decide to set a challenge for myself: playlists showcasing good music from different cities around the U.S. We’re starting off with the nearest “big city” to me, Boston, Massachusetts. It’s weighted toward the late 80s and early 90s, the periods of music I know best. For more recent acts, use the Google to check out Mellow Bravo, the New Collisions, the Organ Beats, Bad Rabbits, Swaggering Growlers, John Shade, the Effective Dose, Sea Monsters, and the Nate Wilson Group.
