The year ending can be melancholic—the passing of time, the memories, the promise of the future, bleak weather. It’s not quahogging season any more kiddos, you better have a space heater in your houseboat. If you are fretting, AS220 is here to help with this Winter Sampler of some of the warmest acts to have played within our hallowed walls. It’s suggested that you listen to this Winter Sampler under a comforter that you have fashioned into a childlike fort while drinking hot cocoa with a peppermint stick stirrer. If these items aren’t available to you just close your eyes, listen to the sonic wonder, and let your imagination run buckwild and free. This is the final sampler of 2013, so now you can download the complete set of them and feel one with the Rhode Island music scene.

It's getting cold, things are dying, leaves are alluringly pretty, people shiver on the beach-- their sweaters thick and wooly. No one is getting tan. It's autumn in Rhode Island and it's profound and frightening. However, the scariest thing of all is the sickening amount of talent on the AS220 Fall Sampler. It's just stupidly grotesque. In the karmic schema of the world it is definitely not fair that the smallest state is endowed with the crushing force of artistry found in all these musical acts. So, grab a pumpkin spice latte, an apple dripping in caramel and your favorite pair of speakers and blast these tunes from a handful of bands in the ocean state. It arrives just in time for Halloween. Listen here!

Coffee milk is the official state drink of Rhode Island. If you haven't tried it, it's basically chocolate milk's more wired cousin, but just as rich, cool and sweet.
Rhode Island's AS220 will also give you creative jolt. They're a non-profit community arts center in downtown Providence. For Spring, they've compiled a seasonal sampler, showcasing musicians from who have played at their space, including the likes of Javelin, Feels, What Cheer? Brigade, The Kolour Kult, Math The Band, Howse & Mincemeat or Tenspeed. Pour yourself a tall glass here.
