2. Frost Heaves And Hales, “Future Artifact”

It’s an honor to hear that Jeff played “Future Artifact” more than once on his show. I never mentioned or shared any albums by The Frost Heaves and Hales with Jeff. It’s my main band now, but our first album didn’t come out until 2009, which means Jeff tracked it down himself. Jeff seemed to have an insatiable and eclectic appetite for new music, and he was an ardent champion of local music in particular. And the fact that he actively sought out music from western MA, even when he was based in the Boston area, is rare given how self-involved and insular local music scenes tend to be. He was much more interested in using music to build bridges than to walls. — Daniel Hales
