Razorcake Podcast #132: With Kurt Morris

From the time I was in high school and first heard Sunny Day Real Estate and Blenderhead, I knew Seattle was a city I wanted to live in. Something about the great music and my admiration for Tooth & Nail Records (back when they put out some good music and I was a Christian) made me want to see the city. Finally, in 2006, without a job or place to live lined up, I put all my possessions in my car and made the move. I ended up living in Seattle for two years and enjoyed it very much (besides my shitty job). It’s a great city with a sweet vibe and really cool people. Tucked in between two sets of mountains and right by the water, it has a lot to offer. And while many people think of Seattle and grunge, it has produced many other fantastic bands and artists. Therefore, for this podcast I thought I’d showcase some songs from Seattle artists. I hope you hear something you like!
