Chapter 1
FoundTrack Podcast - Episode 9 - Intro
In this week's session, we will feature a couple bands who i was lucky enough to catch last week including Seattle's Pharmacy, and my introduction to some bright local natives such as Lady Danville, Learning Music and Tearist. Unfortunately prior commitments wouldn't allow me to catch touring bands Christmas Island, and Oliver $ but they will be in the mix as well. We have a lot to look forward to this coming week including the premiere LA engagement of Jessica 6 (Ex-Hercules and Love Affair), Toronto's Rural Alberta Advantage and the return of Zero 7 with opener Phantogram.
