Ever heard of Forecastle? Nope, me neither. Noistrade has a mixtape in preparation for the Kentucky music festival, and I randomly downloaded it. It’s got its hits and misses, but I’ve been listening to it on repeat nonetheless. Highlights: Cathedrals, Shovels & Rope, ZZ Ward.
What’s missing? The Tallest Man on Earth, a 31-year-old bearded Swedish man who sounds exactly like Bob Dylan and will be at this year’s festival. I’m mildly obsessed with him (er, his music) … and we share a birthday, a fun fact fueling my fire.
So. Bourbon & live music, anyone?
