As one of the few festivals I’ve never been to (but really wanted to attend), I’m pumped to head down to Big Sur for Woodsist Festival. This year, the folksy shindig moves from Henry Miller Memorial Library to Loma Vista Cafe and Gardens, an equally amazing place to kick it underneath the trees and let nature and music heal ALL the wounds. In anticipation, I’ve put together a mixtape featuring a couple songs from each artist. Tickets are sold out, but here’s hoping some of you out there nabbed tickets early and are joining me in playing hookey from work on Monday. See you there!
On this month’s mix, we’ve got everything from a 16-year-old rapper who you probably know through his father to our buddies who have been making music for 16 years and are still going strong. Throw the headphones on and escape for the next 47 minutes of your life.
HEYO! Not seeing the cassette tape above? Listen here.
Sometimes they’ve got rap, sometimes they’ve got soul. Sometimes they’re new tracks, sometimes they’re mad old. We’re just talking about our mixtapes, but that’s also a good lead into the first track. Kick back and click for some new Wombats, Tame Impala, Sufjan and more.

“Remember the first time you went to a show and saw your favorite band? You wore their shirt, and sang every word. You didn’t know anything about scene politics, haircuts, or what was cool. All you knew was that this music made you feel different from anyone you shared a locker with. Someone finally understood you. This is what music is about.”
I don’t think any of us are MCR fans, but I have to give props to Gerard Way for that one.
On this month’s mix, you’ll find tracks from by Springtime Carnivore, Fat Tony, Day Wave and even a track we felt self-conscious about including, but said we’re gonna do it anyways. Try to guess which one.
