This month we’re streaming tunes from the early
Fat Possum days.
For more of their sounds, head
on over to

You probably know Mississippi label Fat Possum for The Black Keys, Tennis, Spiritualized, El-P, Andrew Bird, The Walkmen, Unknown Mortal Orchestra… shall we continue? Their music is blaring from your local college/indie/rock/main-stream stations and from your iPods and Spotify and… whatever gadget you use to hear tunes. Fun fact: Fat Possum is also responsible for making sure we get to hear from some of Mississippi’s blues greats — artists we may have missed otherwise (R.L. Burnside, T-Model Ford, Junior Kimbrough ring any bells? If not — get educated people). Without the Blues you wouldn’t be listening to The Black Keys so pay your respects! Fat Possum has been doing us all a service by making sure some amazing older records are kept in circulation. 

Don’t believe us? Take a look at their catalog, it’s good stuff. Find them at
