This week’s #FridayBeats are brought to you by Guest DJ, Kyle Durrie. If you don’t know who Kyle is, she’s a wild and crazy road warrior/letterpress lady.
I met her in February when we hosted her at k2forma as part of Letterpress Fest. She spent about a year traveling from town to town, teaching others about letterpress in her converted bread truck. She’s incredibly modest about it, but how many of us will ever do something like this? It’s truly incredible. And now she’s got some amazing stories to tell for years to come. I’ll let her introduce herself…
My name is Kyle Durrie. I’m a letterpress printer from Portland, Oregon, proprietor of Power and Light Press, and owner/operator of Moveable Type, a letterpress print shop in a truck. I’ve just completed a 10 month, 30,000+ mile tour of the USA, spreading the good word about printing the old fashioned way. www.type-truck.com
And now for the beats
Hit the road. Get out of town. Turn off your phone, get free, get lost, get a sunburn, get lonesome, get weird.
Think about where you come from and where you’re going. Get right with yourself.
Here are some songs by some folks who really know what it means to be out there on the open road.
Your summer road trip maybe doesn’t have to be so heavy on the heartache and self-destruction, but that’s your call, really.
This playlist is brought to you courtesy of Spotify and Kyle. ~Thanks!
