Iowa Basement Tapes #45 - 5/9/2019


Night Listeners -


I feel like I have avoided playing tunes from Ames because I have always thought that the music from that city was extremely self indulgent. But I have come to love that about Ames. So tonight I got some new tunes from Stars Hollow. They do some loud emo pop stuff that some of you might enjoy. I also have two tunes from the new Traffic Death / Captain Three Leg split 12". One from each band that will rip your face right off.


Iowa Basement Tapes has its own archive of Iowa music. Be sure to check out iowabasementtapes.bandcamp.com and download any of the releases for free.
