brave baby mixtape

We first heard Brave Baby about about a little over a year ago here at M|H and it was love at first listen. “Lakeside Trust” is one of the best songs to have come out in the last few years, catchy as all get out. When we saw that Brave Baby was coming to Madison as part of the Communion Madison club night series we asked them to make us a mixtape. A mobile mail mishap kept us from getting their mix up before the show, but we’re pleased to present it for your enjoyment now. Eclectic and full of songs you might have forgotten you loved, let Brave Baby take you on a ride.

the rhythm section: great drum beats – a mix by california wives

When I first heard California Wives, I thought I was in love. Then I went to see them live, and I knew it. After their excellent set I hit up singer Jayson Kramer and guitarist Graham Masell and chatted about touring, communicable disease, and the excellence of hair metal. Since we got on so well I thought I’d invite them to make a mix, and with the help of their lovely manager Tom got this love letter from the band to the rhythm section in return. Ranging from sleek new wave to shimmying soul, this mix has wide appeal. If you get the chance to see California Wives on tour, do, but until then check out their SoundCloud page to see how their musical tastes influence their own work.
