third installment, posted back in November of last year, but the "series" (for lack of a better word) proved to be popular with you, plus there were a few more inches from that reel which I felt warranted further exposure. If you're new to what I'm referring to, Little Hits was an unrelated music blog that preceded mine, largely dedicated to left-off-the-dial indie rock obscurities circa the 1980s. It turned me onto to at least a dozen top-shelf acts from yesteryear, and left such a profound impression on me, I decided to throw my cap into the blogosphere ring with Wilfully Obscure. Throughout the latter part of 2013 I began sharing self-curated compilations of some of the music I downloaded during Little Hits 2005-2009 reign. Since I can't get to everything in depth on these pages, I'm at least able to pitch some Cliff's Notes your way.
