Welcome to the fourth installment in a series in which I highlight some of my favorite voices online and beyond. Thus far we’ve featured sets by Raven Sings The Blues, Ponytone, Turquoise Wisdom and Cold Splinters.  Next up: The Rising Storm. Long before the blog’s founder, Brendan McGrath, was a regular AD contributor, we bonded over a shared appreciation of obscure, forgotten and out of print sonic relics. Not surprisingly, today’s mixtape sounds like something you might hear drifting out of a transistor radio while marooned at an out-of-the-way highway roadhouse. Just the way we like ‘em.

Catch McGrath’s guest DJ set this Friday during the second hour of my radio show. Grab this mix below and bookmark his site.

After the jump… The Rising Storm – A Mixtape.
