The Friday Five – July 28, 2017

It’s almost time for my vacation in the Pacific Northwest, so I’ve been busy creating playlists of all my favorite PNW bands, and deciding what albums off my want list I’d like to look for when I visit all those amazing record shops in Portland and Seattle.  I’ve had so much awesome ’90s music in my head that I thought I’d share a few of my favorites for this week’s Friday Five.  Now, I could easily just lay down five Sleater-Kinney tracks, because you know they’re my favorite PNW band.  But I’ll refrain.  For now.

Bangs – S.O.S.

Dear Nora – You Are 26

Lois – The Trouble With Me

Team Dresch – Remember Who You Are

Beat Happening – Godsend

The Friday Five – June 10, 2016

My Pacific Northwest vacation is so close now. I can’t wait to dig into all the record stores out there and come home with loads of vinyl. Until then, I’ve been listening to a lot of my favorite PNW bands, past and present. You all know that I have huge love for Sleater-Kinney, Quasi, and Wimps, so I figured I’d highlight some other bands this week.

Without further ado, here are some PNW bands and tunes I dig.

1. The Gossip – “Don’t (Make Waves)”

2. Beat Happening – “Indian Summer”

3. Heavens to Betsy – “Complicated”

4. Team Dresch – “She’s Amazing”

5. Excuse 17 – “Nervousness Never Fades”
