You shop farmers markets and support local down to your skivvies, but your sound track? Not so much.
Online radio station Jet City Stream can point you in the right direction. From mainstays such as Jimi Hendrix, Pearl Jam, and Death Cab for Cutie to up-and-comer Allen Stone, you’re guaranteed an earful of nothing but Seattle.
In honor of the South by Southwest music festival, Jet City Stream’s deejays created a playlist of area noisemakers making the trek to Austin this week.
“Native Dreams,” by Rose Windows
(A psychedelic track reminiscent of The Doors and Jim Morrison.)
“Running for Cover,” by Ivan & Alyosha (pictured)
(Folk-pop harmonies and killer lyrics.)
“Bright Stars Burning,” by Hey Marseilles
(Crush hard on these six Columbia City dudes and their orchestral sound.)
“You Go Running,” by Deep Sea Diver
(Boogie-inducing from the first note.)
“Electric Love,” by Reignwolf
(Straight-up, white-hot rock ’n’ roll.)
“Thrift Shop,” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
(Seattle’s beloved thrifter.)
“On Again, Off Again,” by Lemolo
(Mr. Wrong. Mr. Right.)
“Ghosts and Creatures,” by Telekinesis
(A toe-tapping, swirling soundscape.)
“Same Love,” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, featuring Mary Lambert
(Thought-provoking rap meets Lambert’s tender vocals.)
