Mornin' all!

I just stumbled across this blog called When You Awake:


Its got a great set of mixtapes including the "Goes Twang" series where they compile country-infused covers of their favourite artists (Neil, Bob, Townes Van Zandt, The Band, etc etc). Pretty good stuff. I know a lot of you will like it. Enjoy!
