Here we go, the first installment of an irregular series in which I plan on highlighting some of my favorite voices online (and beyond). We’re kicking off with Raven Sings The Blues. Based in NYC, since 2006, Raven has been a go-to source dealing in garage, psych, lo-fi and other related curiosities—both new and old. I asked RavenAndy to curate the following mixtape summing up RSTB’s aesthetic. At 20+ tracks, it does just that. Andy is my guest this Friday during the second hour of my SIRIUS XMU show. Grab this mix and be sure to bookmark his site.
