Caribou Lodge – April Playlist

Here’s my Caribou Lodge work playlist for this month. Will probably add to it a bit as the month goes on. The songs on this list tend towards low-key, thoughtful, and optimistic. My mind, at all times, is an intense and swirling mess but right now instead of finding music to match that I’m gonna

Beater – Bad Decisions Edition

Today I turn 48 years old. And buddy, lemme tell you it’s been a long, strange life. I’ve got four kids, ranging in age from “finishing their first year of college” to “can’t tie his shoes yet”. I’ve performed in more than 20 countries and I’ve been on TV in most of those. I’ve been

Sasquatch 2022

There are few things I love more in this world than really big return tops. It’s kinda wild that I never got into 4A because the equipment is just my size! It’s no secret that I love big return tops, and it’s also no secret that I’ve had wrist problems for years now. Tendinitis reared
