#YouTube Playlist: I "Kill Rock Stars" Too (Metaphorically...Duh)
Why (I) Kill Rock Stars
One of my goals is building music community. In the last few week's I have been running a feature called Blog 2 Blog where I highlight other music blogs. Today, I am trying to build community in another new way by starting to build #YouTube playlists highlighting independent record labels I like and/or admire.
I am starting this feature off with one of my old favorite labels "Kill Rock Stars."
I am focusing this one mostly on newer acts on the label. But, this label, at one time or another, housed some of my all-time favorites like The Melvins, Elliot Smith, Heavens To Betsy, Bikini Kill, Sleater Kinney, and of course, once upon a time, some Seattle band whose name starts with the letter N.
As always, you can "Just Hit Play" or Hit Play and click on the band names in bold below to get more information about the bands. I am strongly recommending both the new Summer Cannibals album "Full Of It" (out in about a week) and the new Wimps album "Suitcase."
