We’ve asked all of the artists on the BSR label to contribute a mixtape’s worth of songs centered around sounds that have influenced them to create music. Conceptually, this isn’t a wholly original idea but I’ve always discovered fantastic music based on recommendations received from my favorite bands. It only makes sense, right?

If you guessed the Graham Repulski installment would be steeped in 90′s indie rock, arty post-punk and, well, The Boss – then consider yourself a rather observant student.
