The Friskiest One Yet: Basementcast #11

photo from Vintage Seattle

I tell ya.  Let the sun come out in Seattle this time of year and people go nuts.  The clouds cracked open this afternoon and people came out of the woodwork, stripping off clothes and soaking up the sunshine like they might never see it again.  And they might not, at least not until July.  While the rest of the northern hemisphere is springing into summer we in the PNW are left waiting.  Something just as unpredictable as the exact start date of summer around here, is when the next basementcast will appear.  Well, here is my attempt to taunt mother nature.  A new basementcast, and none to soon.  Filled with songs to conjure the next season along, a grill, a cooler, some flip-flops and even a sun hat.  I even threw in a sun lamp just in case.

    Dig that Minks single too. They’re less Captured Tracks-y live.

    And had no idea there was a new Babybird album.

      …Keeping up with this kind of stuff could be construed as a full-time job. If only it paid well.
