Weekly Playlist: Under the Bleachers

This week's playlist is brought to you by a very good friend, a frequent TS model and the unofficial mayor of San Francisco. Nicky Koch runs Four Barrel, the coffee shop next to our store. If you have ever been in Four Barrel you might have noticed that their vintage audio setup is both rare and extremely robust and also that their selection of vinyl tunes is always spot on for the moment and mood. Much of that great sonic vibe is the work of Nicky. He grew up in Seattle and spent years writing about the local music scene. It is rare that a band from the Northwest comes to town and doesn't make their first stop a cup of coffee and a hug at Four Barrel. We let Nicky do his thing, and he came back to us with a fine selection of tunes that bring him back to his high school days and nights spent under the bleachers.
