Detroit Proud Playlist: Week of 9/23

We’re betting you’re getting a bit down with all of this cold weather coming in, right? First week of Fall can do that to a person… Well, this week’s playlist is the cure for all of those with the autumn blues. Hear tunes that can say what our hearts can’t, and rock away without a care. Inspiring and optimistic is what we were going for.

Instead, The Pathetic Sounds of Detroit, created by Joshua Woodcock and Lee Majors, is intended to be a follow-up to Jack White’s The Sympathetic Sounds of Detroit, the 2001 compilation album that achieved great acclaim and featured many of the biggest up and coming bands of Detroit at the time, including The White Stripes, The Von Bondies, and The Detroit Cobras.
