Have an absolutely beautiful rest of your life.
The start of 2016 has delivered a blistering level of heartbreak and loss to the world of music. My ears have been filled with tributes and specials trying to bring some sort of closure, not to mention a flurry of special programming that needed curating. A few weeks ago I received the news that my Mother's time on the planet is rapidly approaching the end. Hopefully that explains the silence lately on this blog, although perhaps I saved you from weeks of "sad-bastard" music posts by keeping my keyboard quiet. Here are some new sounds I'm enjoying at the moment.
Can't believe I went more than a month without posting but I've been in dental reconstruction hell, as well as very busy at work. That said, here's a few new and old things that I've been cranking in the Basement Studio recently.
From a soon to be released tribute to the late John Martyn...
Brian Fallon from The Gaslight Anthem and Ian Perkins are The Horrible Crowes... Find all the info here.
The return of Rachael Yamagata....
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.
And/Or follow and support my efforts for Mixcloud.
