Have an absolutely beautiful rest of your life.
It's been sort of a nightmare Memorial Day this year in my world but I remain determined to continue this series and move forward as music is always the best medicine. This episode finds a few Memorial Day tunes, more from the brilliant new album by The Summer Kills with Matthew Ryan, new nuggets from Damien Jurado, Arctic Monkeys, Gaz Coombs, Birds of Chicago, Frank Turner, Brian Eno with Kevin Shields and the always brilliant eels. Also a medical report from the great Warren Zevon, Spirit and Love reissues, classic Stevie Wonder, Todd Rundgren and John Coltrane, a timely slice of instrumental magic from Percy Faith and a whole bunch more.
Almost didn't get to Episode 14 this week but managed to finish. An absolute brilliant new song from Will Hoge is a must hear, and you will get other new things from the lovely Judith Owen, MAtthew Sweet, Elvis Costello (covering Squeeze), Courtney Barnett's new single, Leon Bridges, Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog and The Burned. Some proggy things including a brand new remix of the late Chris Squires first solo record, live Lou Reed and Bowie, ultra rare Beach Boys and a ton of wisdom from Gil Scott-Heron.
Many have asked how to keep the From The Basement programs afloat, especially now that I am unemployed. Please donate via PayPal below whatever you feel you can afford to help cover my costs. Thank you.
