It's the CLASS OF 2012 edition of Boston Accents, where we had some bands hang out in the WFNX studio, spun the entire compilation -- which you can download for free via our Bandcamp -- and just had a merry ol' time, discussing everything from new music to upcoming shows to witch haus to Road House. Huge thanks to GLASS TEETH, GHOST BOX ORCHESTRA, YOUNG LONDON, LEISURE (who gave us a new track, "The Invisible Hand," to premiere), ANIMAL TALK, DIRTY VIRGINS, CALEB GROH, and CAMDEN (who rolled up mad late) for taking the trek up to Lynn.
Here's the playlist, in it's purest form, with some added goodies at the end (click here for the feature, band blurbs, and upcoming gigs):
