BAND OF THE DAY: The Softies
PLACE OF DISCOVERY: Allison and Katie Crutchfield’s What’s in my Bag? (which introduced me to several other artists/bands).
WAXY-PROCLAIMED GENRE: Barrette soft rock
ALBUM LISTENED TO: Mostly It’s Love and Winter Pagent
FAV SONG(S) SO FAR: Tunnels and Trains, An Awful Mess, Alaska, Fragile Don’t Crush
THOUGHTS/FEELINGS: So CLEARLY, I’m a bit late to The Softies game – they appeared on the scene in 1994 and somehow I’ve lived my life without hearing them but I’m getting on board now. They’re extremely easy to listen to, reflective and tell some delightfully adoring/macabre stories.
CONSENSUS: Mad I lived through my teenage years without hearing this band.
