Have an absolutely beautiful rest of your life.
Take a trip with From The Basement Episode #66 as we cruise through new stuff from The Bird & The Bee, Bon Iver, The Pixies, John Prine (with Margo Price), Bruce Cockburn and Ben Folds. We’ll stop for archival new arrivals from Elliott Smith and The Beatles and pay tribute to Nick Walusko (aka Nicky Wonder) of The Wondermints and Brian Wilson’s band who has left us at the tender age of 59. Including a side trip for my entire set from the WHTG reunion at The Saint In Asbury Park on 8/10, we’ll jump lanes from The Specials, Blue Oyster Cult, They Might Be Giants and House Of Freaks to name just a few. Fasten your seatbelts and please keep those cards, letters and donations coming at https://paypal.me/pools/c/8beKwFWlHR. Thanks for listening and your continued patronage.
Welcome to a new month as From The Basement Episode #65 (Joe’s Garage Act XXV) marks our entry into August with more of the brilliant debut from The Quiet Temple. They are joined by another exciting debut album by Manchester sextet Pieces Of Man, a genre defying blend of R&B, Jazz, Soul and more, with a nod to the late, great Gil Scott-Heron. Another new release fave is the latest release from School Of Language, the side project of Field Music’s David Brewis offering a U.K. perspective of our orange menace with an entire Trump inspired album called “45.” We also get to the historical release of Adam’s House Cat, the pre-DBT’s combo of Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley. Speaking of history, the 50 year old performance of Creedence Clearwater Revival at Woodstock finally sees the light of day. And there are new offerings from The New Pornographers, Marc Cohn with The Blind Boys Of Alabama and the wonderful Andrew Bird. We dip into sounds that range from Duke Ellington and Ray Charles to T.S.O.L. and Tom Waits. There is a Prince request filled, a sonic ode to the weekend and a whole bunch more. Thanks for your continued generosity at https://paypal.me/pools/c/8beKwFWlHR allowing me the funds to continue in these very difficult times. Love to you all.
