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

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 fatpossum.com.
