Sled Island Mix

My dad was so fired up for Sled Island that he wanted to flood his ipod with tunes from the bands playing this week in Calgary.

It has now resulted in a sweet new Al Emes mixtape - I helped him string it together... Check it out:

"Pete Emes of Smalltown DJs has a musical mastermind of a Dad who is a also a fan of Sled Island. Going beyond regular fandom, Mr.Al Emes put his discerning ears to work and created this great Sled Island mix made up entirely of Sled Island bands. Al is very excited about this year’s lineup and he had a tough time choosing between Extinction and Answer to Yourself by The Soft Pack. "
