KCRW Exclusive: !!! Cabin Fever Mix (for Your Holiday Travels)

Written by

!!! shows are always a party.

And the after party? Well, according to lead singer Nic Offer, they have some of the best around because keyboardist/sax player Allan Wilson takes over as DJ.

Now, they want to bring the party straight to you. The band plans on releasing a series of mixes this summer around various festival/tour dates. The first, from Allan, is the Cabin Fever Mix which you can stream  below and download directly from the Soundcloud page.  Soulful, groovy, and perfect for a weekend drive if you’re headed anywhere for Memorial Day.

From Nic:

“Here’s that mix that Allan did of stuff we’ve been jamming out to. It’s in the popular MP3 format. Allan deejayed some of the funnest after-parties we’ve been to this year (ours) and his skills are really coming up. This is perfect to bump at tailgate parties before our show, or tent-side at the festivals this summer.”

The guys are originally from Sacramento and wanted to pick a Cali station to premiere their first mix and we were happy to oblige. They will be back on the West Coast for two shows in August – the Pacific Festival in OC on August 13 and Outside Lands on August 14.

When I first saw them play, I had no idea who they were but a friend convinced me to go as his +1. I had NEVER seen an LA crowd get down like that. It wasn’t at a rave — it was a rock venue and people were going crazy! I left sweaty from dancing with a huge smile on my face.

We loved their most recent album Strange Weather, Isn’t Itand “AM/FM” was the most played track on KCRW at one point last year.

Enjoy the mix!
