The final month of this brutal year finds most everyone I know in desperate need of a hug. Don’t you feel it? Confusion, dismay and in too many cases... abject fear of what lies ahead before the calendar finally turns. As John Lee Hooker once sang, “Music is The Healer” and that’s what FTB #105 is all about. Let’s keep safe, lean toward love and allow the healing to begin. New sounds this time from Negativland, Cliff Hillis, Death Cab For Cutie, Daniella Cotton, The Midnight Callers, Robyn Hitchcock, The Hold Steady, Bruce Springsteen, a new mix of a seminal George Harrison song and a blistering new take on a Coltrane masterpiece from an ensemble including Henry Kaiser and Mike Watt. There’s even a few early Holiday treats including new original music from Calexico along with Noel nuggets from Big Star and The Smithereens. Listen for some 2020 musical highlights from Fiona Apple, The Posies and Fontaines D.C. and as always a romp through the stacks. Thanks to all for the generous support at https://paypal.me/pools/c/8beKwFWlHR and know that I am sending all the love in the world to each and every one of you.
