SJFM Mix Series - Perfect Strangers Edition Vol. 4

Welcome to another edition of the SJFM Mix Series! Despite the inclusion of a few British and Finnish artists, this mix is an ode to a unique brand of majestic and strange Americana. Included are dusty ballads, free-form guitar explorations, sweeping, impressionistic contemporary classical compositions, ambient piano improvisations, out-of-time cowboy music, intensely minimalist pop, and some of the flat out best songs I know of.

If this mix was a movie it would be directed by Terrence Malick. If it was a year it would be 1972. If it was a painting it would be by a French post impressionist. If it was a drug it would be a half smoked joint.

If you find yourself with an hour or so to slow down and vibe out, give it a spin. I guarantee it will take you to a beautiful place.
