Today’s playlist comes from my friend Scotty Sandwich. He plays guitar in the North Carolina punk band, Almost People and the indie-rock act, Pink Drinks. He also runs the amazing d.i.y. punk label, Death to False Hope Records and produces records for The Rentiers, Red Collar and and his own band, Pink Drinks.
This playlist is probably my favorite one yet because almost every band on here besides Handsome and Apocalypse Hoboken is completely new to me. It’s like digging through a bargain bin except every album rules instead of being 37 copies of Pablo Honey, ya know?
“When I saw that Lauren was doing curated playlists, I immediately had to jump at a chance to do one. I love trying to show people bands and music they may have no otherwise have heard. This particular playlist is comprised of lesser know, under appreciated and straight up forgotten about acts. All of these artists have been hugely influential in my development as a musician, songwriter and producer. This was super fun, and I hope someone discovers a band they have longed to find.”
