TBJ Compilation: Volume #3 is Out!


We’re rounding out the last issue of VOLUME #3 of THE BOMBER JACKET, which means a third compilation! This compilation again features many of the acts we’ve covered, this time from issues 21 through 30. The compilation is free for all people far and wide. This is our way of sharing the music we care about. For people who aren’t regular readers, beware that the mix of songs is DIVERSE, to say the least. So if you don’t like a song, that’s fine, but listen to the other ones (and then return to the initial song later when you’re in a different frame of mind).

One way you can help these artists is by actually buying their music, or at the very least, following them on social media pages. For better or worse, Facebook likes are more important than an average music fan would suspect nowadays, so if you’re going to download the comp, please consider “LIKING” these acts, yeah?

Thank you to all the musicians and labels who provided tracks, and thank you to John Brickley, a friend and artist from Pennsylvania who provided us with his beautiful art to use as the compilation’s cover. Fans/supporters can visit John’s work here and here (there is some wonderful merch available, including the design of our comp’s cover)!
