Guest Mix: Midwest Caravan

If I am completely honest with myself, the reasons I listen to rock music are Alicia Silverstone's bellybutton and the Ugly Kid Joe album cover inside the Pizza Hut jukebox. I only know how to write basically one type of song, and the songs on this playlist were either crucial in that development, or they have recently inspired me to keep writing. I listen to an unhealthy amount of black metal these days, but I figured no one would want to hear that garbage (hit me up if you want that mix!). Until more radio stations play 90's alternative rock more than just one hour a day or week, either enjoy this playlist, or go watch the Spacehog "In the Meantime" music video on Youtube.



Midwest Caravan
's new self-titled album will be released Tuesday, July 28, and can be pre-ordered now on Bandcamp. They'll play a record release show at White Water Tavern Tuesday night with The Uh Huhs and Ghost Foot.

  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
  • Lynchings hidden in the history of the Hot Springs Confederate monument

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.
