Friday Mixtape! | Bent

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

After all, not only is White Sea’s Morgan Kibby pretty open about the fact that her first solo album is all about the end of a relationship, but she is also a huge fan of The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise, known for creating doomed pairings.

From Frank Sinatra’s divorce from Ava Gardner to John Grant’s scathing indictment of his ex-boyfriend, this Friday Mixtape includes some of the most gut-wrenching songs ever produced by jilted lovers. And kicking it off is “Small December” by White Sea. A piano driven ballad with quietly piercing vocals, the song depicts the tussle of wills that often precipitates the final gasp of a relationship on life support.

We caught up with Morgan Kibby at Sasquatch. Read the interview on BENT this week.
