Artist Discovery: Charley Crockett
Lake Street Dive's new album "Free Yourself Up" was our Record Of The Month for May.
This album is full of strong lyrics that will be sure to resonate with you in same way. As bassist, Bridget Kearney says, “It is based in the realities of our time which have inevitably become part of everyone’s daily life. It’s something you think about and obsess over — and write songs about. Free Yourself Up is about empowering yourself, emboldening yourself, no matter what’s going wrong.”

Dr. Dog - Critical Equation
It just sounds better. But why? Truth be told, vinyl sounds this way to us because of the range of sounds it gives off. Vinyl is very “mid-range”, allowing our ears to listen back to the tracks in nearly the exact way that we hear music organically.
Vinyl Skipping? Don't panic, here are a few tips!
"The group’s brilliant new album, ‘Critical Equation' is the most infectious and adventurous collection Dr. Dog has laid to tape yet, the record was born from a journey of doubt and discovery, a heavy, sometimes painful reckoning that ultimately brought the band closer together with more strength and clarity than ever before."
