Starting to see the first new releases of interest in 2010: new Vampire Weekend in stores today, we heard the single Cousins this morning. We also heard new music from Lissie, and local music from Heatbox and Pert’ Near Sandstone’s new one.
Tried to give our ears some positive songs this morning: Karl Denson’s new one Brother’s Keeper, Sly the Family Stone You Can Make It If You Really Try, The Brass Kings When the Springtime Comes and the like. Also played songs from Teddy Pendergrass and Jay Reatard, as small thanks for sharing their creativity with the world. Both too young to have left us.
Big morning for new releases: my list at 6:30 included Magnetic Fields, Scout Niblett, Four Tet, Eric Bibb, Bei Bei Shawn Lee, Soweto Gospel Choir, and we heard from Beach House and Retribution Gospel Choir. We also heard from Juliana Hatfield’s forthcoming album, Peace Love. Nice thought.
