I just watched 3 full days of live music in Seattle at the Capitol Hill Block Party. And certainly, I enjoyed seeing the more well known acts (Chvrches, The Joy Formidable, Washed Out) and breakout local acts (ODESZA, Car Seat Headrest) put on great performances. But I also loved seeing a number of small acts play some awesome sets, like Oh Pep!, Tangerine, Benajamin Francis Leftwich, and Iska Dhaaf. Checkout some pics I took below. I included songs from some of those bands in my list this month amidst a number of tracks from some familiar groups, like Jagwar Ma, Blind Pilot, Bat for Lashes, Blood Orange, Angel Olsen, and more. And I’m opening the list with some fantastic songs from Justice and The Avalanches. Enjoy.
