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?

This edition of the BSR mixtape boasts a breadth of variety submitted by the four members of Bombadil. Click the arrow to open up your lesson in the ex.fm player or right-click and save-as for future use. If you haven’t picked up the band’s All That The Rain Promises LP yet please rectify this.
