April Tunes from Emma*

*Each month the Anchorage Press hands the playlist reins over to a local musician or music enthusiast for independent construction. The Press Blog then shares said playlist along with the maker’s thoughts about the mix and a concise bio about the constructor and his or her current project(s). For the month of April local musician Emma Hill put together a list of things she’s been digging on lately. Her’s is the sixth playlist in our ongoing series.
