throwin’ shayde: Summer Fridays 8.4


And Summer Fridays 8.4 finally appears. Artwork is by the very talented (and fellow West Virginian) Shayde Sartin who plays bass in The Fresh & Onlys and is currently doing the same in Sonny & the Sunsets who are on tour and may be playing a town near you soon. I love Shayde’s style — you may have seen it on Trouble in Mind Eindhoven 2015 comp recently — and am very psyched to have him do the cover art. As for the song selection, this one I started with the idea of late-’70s mutant pop, like early dB’s and went from there. Enjoy, and see you next week, whether that’s a Friday or not.
