Hi Music Friends,
I’ll try and regularly post playlists here, and soon I’ll add a widget to make them searchable by Artist, Album or Date. And once that’s done, I’ll try and add in the last 20 years of assorted playlists from a whole bunch of past shows. Music Nerds Paradise!
New sounds for the waning days of the fund drive! New (and new-old) music from Amythyst Kiah, Joy Oladukun, Mavis & Levon, Eli Paperboy Reed, Nicki Bluhm, Bret McKenzie and more. A neo-trad-70’s-mashup set from a handful of young Irish vocalists, and a sideways goodbye to Vangelis.
Fundraise We Must – but our pleas for cash are nonetheless accompanied by some fine music from The Felice Brothers, Sturgill Simpson and Willie Nelson, Jesse deNatale, Jesse Malin, Stevie Wonder, Sam & Dave, Allison Moorer, Duffy, and Molly Tuttle, among many others. Come for the tunes, stay for the sparkling cyanide.
This show starts out a little bit dark and gothic, but with the help of Willie Nelson, Jim Lauderdale, Madeline Edwards, and Patty Griffin finds its way to the light. Then kind of settles down into a misty blue. I guess it all evens out in the end.
Some new releases to get excited about: Mavis Staples and Levon Helm (Recorded in 2011, coming soon!), unreleased Son House material from 1964! Waxahatchee! (Not sure which I like more, the song or saying the name Waxahatchee…). Belle and Sebastian?
