Jackson Phillips is the man behind Day Wave, and the fact that he’s from the same neck of the woods as the host of this show (the San Francisco Bay Area) has nothing to do with his selection to lead this week’s batch of tunes! Nothing at all, I say! Well, maybe a teeny bit, but his records have been getting spins on THE BIG BEAT for a year or two now, and we’re excited to have the lead track from his forthcoming full-length debut to play for you this week. Also, his Tumblr has a bunch of cool, outdoorsy pics. Good man.
