Strohm's own intelligently written backstory makes it worth hitting the link, as is his credibility for understanding what it takes to be in a band. Strohm was a Bloomington native who migrated to Boston as that scene was hitting in the '80s, and formed the Blake Babies before returning to Indiana.
My favorite cuts on the August offering include tunes from the Mysteries of Life's "Southdowns" from 1998, Dale Lawrence's Vulgar Boatmen track "Mary Jane" from 1990, and a track by "how the hell did they implode?" band Old Pike ("The Color" from their 1997 Video Saloon EP).
Plenty of other good stuff, with a nicely written overview of each track to enlighten before, during or after a listen. Not yet made it a habit to check out the MFT offering each month? You should.
