A guy I know turned me on to Cryptacize, a lovely San Francisco band fronted by Nedelle Torrisi, who is someone you should hear sing if you haven’t yet. You can do that here. Or watch that here.
One of my favorite things about this band, however, is that they put out these great online mixtapes of other music, a well-curated collage of what they are listening to, aural post-it notes. The fall mix includes Captain Beefheart, Ornette Coleman, Miriam Makeba, Ellie Greenwich, and a lot of other goodness that I did not know previously existed but has made my day. You can download it by clicking here.
Thanks again to the Internet, for being so cornucopious.
