An Ill-Fated Travel #MixTapeMonday

An Ill-Fated Travel #MixTapeMonday

Today represents our final #MixTapeMonday for awhile, or at least until we write and release some new songs.

Moving Is The Worst! #MixTapeMonday

Sorry for the delay in #MixTapeMonday! I think we just spaced out for a couple of weeks there. Tape #5 is based on the song “Two Stories,” which is a song about the struggle and pain of trying to find home. It centers on moving out of San Francisco, then because that’s where home is, making the sacrifices to move back. Stream it on Spotify here: Or, if you are having trouble with that, here’s the YouTube playlist: Or, of course, if you want to build it yourself, here is the track listing: The Mowgli’s – San Francisco My Morning Jacket – Leaving on a Jet Plane The Decemberists – Los Angeles, I’m Yours Spoon – Rent I Pay The Treacherous French – Two Stories Simon & Garfunkel – Homeward...
