Notes and Bolts: Gnarly Slivers 001

Gnarly Slivers is a new bi-weekly mixtape podcast series from Notes and Bolts. The mixtape podcast features Chicago bands hand-selecting a playlist featuring other Chicago bands. Notes and Bolts mixes it all up with “film samples, incidental music, bizarre echo and reverb, and all sorts of other sonic wizardry. In other words, a true mixtape in every way but that it’s not on a physical cassette!”

From Notes and Bolts:

“Inspired by overloading on truckloads of hip hop mixes, Diplo tapes, and countless teenage nights binging out to those late night megamix things that we all used to hear on pop radio, Gnarly Slivers is the latest project from N+B highlighting the beyond vast trove of Chicago artists that are making this city rad!”

For the inaugural mixtape, Fake Limbs did the choosing while Notes and Bolts did the mixing!

Give it a listen here.
