I must not have been paying very close attention in US History class (maybe I was concentrating too hard on drawing checkerboards on my Chuck Taylors with a Sharpie) because I swear I had never even heard of the Goodnight Loving Trail until I was googling the band Goodnight Loving from Milwaukee.
Apparently, these cute boys that play twangy pop that gets me crazy named their band after an old cattle trail that was started by Charles Goodnight and Oliver Loving in 1866… people sure used to have cooler names!
Goodnight Loving is currently on a big tour, and they'll be stopping in New York to play a few shows, including one that I'm setting up at Silent Barn.
For this week's mixtape, I took my inspiration from their namesake: The Goodnight Loving Trail. Enjoy this mix that's all about trips and/or journeys, literal or figurative. This one's a bit eclectic, goes all over the place genre-wise.
Hope you like it!
