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 time around we’re exploring eclectic selections from Point Reyes members’ collections for the Big School Mixtape Series. 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 Golden LP yet please check yoself.
