Podcast #41… Better Late than Never

Hello fellow earbudders,

I know, it’s long overdue. But here is the latest installment of my podcast. The last few months have been hard on me and I haven’t had a chance really to devote time to create a proper podcast – until now. But I haven’t abandoned my fellow music fanatics. So here is a mix of good things. Your ears will thank you for listening, as do I. As usual, you can click on the picture for a larger version. And here’s the setlist. Enjoy, share, and y’all come back now y’hear? I’ll be back next month with a new show.

Fine Nine Friday…

So I’ve been listening to a lot of music.

Wait, you too? Well that’s fantastic. Here’s some more to add to the fire – a rundown of new tunes. And since we are a country made up of “lists,” far be it from me to not throw my head in the ring.

I like to call this my “Fine Nine Friday.” I hope to make this a Friday staple. Here are the ones that are making me shake my tailfeather in my jammy jammies.


1. Sam Proper – Animal. If you like minimalist dance with the occasional vocal, this is the win for you.

2. Blue October – Any Man in America. My favorite sad saps are back, but with a positive, light at the end of the tunnel at some point vibe. IS there such a thing?? At least with them, yes.

3. Slash – Apocalyptic Love. Myles Kennedy rejoins Slash with a pure rock album. No filler here. Definitely get your air guitar on.

4. Scissor Sisters – Magic Hour. Oh man, I can’t say enough how much I love this album. Let’s Have a Kiki.. that song ALONE is worth the purchase. Definitely doing a lot of tailfeather shakin’.

5. Alabama Shakes – Boys and Girls. Pure southern crunchy guitar rock. Thumbs up. WAY up.

6. Grimes – 88 Keys. I love the vibe of this rapper. He realizes the struggle, and continues on.

7. Slug & Murs – Felt 3. An oldie but a goodie. The dynamic duo return with the third installment of their hip-hop classic, Felt, this time dedicating the album to Rosie Perez. Heavy bass production, lyrically wonderful.

8. Usher – Looking 4 Myself. Solid return. See previous blog regarding his album.

9. Japandroids – Celebration Rock. They cram such loud rock in under 39 minutes. It’s ridiculous. It’s sick. It’s sickulous. Pass it on.

And there you have.. “And everything’s going to be fine fine fineeee..”
