Hi all! I hope your month has been full of fantastic tunes, sun, and blooms, thanks to last month's rain showers.
Much of my music consumption this month was influenced by my discoveries at Treefort Music Fest that happened at the end of March. Genders (Portland), Sunbathe (Portland), GABI (Phoenix), and Flaural (Denver) are 4 of 400+ bands that played Treefort and were musts for this playlist. The four days I spent at Treefort consisted of roaming around the small, very chill city of Boise, ID, mostly with friends I had just met on that trip, catching all the live music we could. Very cool festival with very cool people and music.
Also, only five bands on this playlist were familiar to me before the beginning of this year, and I’m not quite sure how to fully express my excitement about these discoveries, but please enjoy.
