playlist 8.9.11 americana/folk + eclectic electronic

I started off the show today with an americana/ roots/ ’70’s rock/ folk inspired set, feeling woodsy due to my recent Tahoe excursion. Appropriately enough I was able to give a pair of tickets away to Little Wings at Great American Music Hall, perfect for the low-key folksy vibe. Fun fact: Little Wings (aka Kyle Field) also dabbles in art, he made the drawing to the right.
