From The Basement begins 2020 by celebrating the release of the wonderful new album from The Weeklings with a visit to their basement and 3 tunes from their new record, their first in stereo, called “3.” Speaking of new stuff, Nada Surf return with a song that would be a smash if real radio still existed and the same goes for Jeff Whalen, former Tsar leader, who put out 2 of the best albums of 2019. There’s also a Gil Scott-Heron reworking, as well as terrific new stuff from Diane & The Gentlemen and Graham Parker. We’ll take some time to acknowledge the musical brilliance of Neil Peart and cultural icon Ed “Kookie” Byrnes who have left for the afterparty in the sky and my daughter Anastasia contributes a stellar set of tunes, proving once again that she’s a chip off the old block. Look for the bonus tracks from last episode at the end of the posted playlist of this one and see if you can guess this week’s nuggets before they are revealed next time. Thanks as always for your support, love and ears!
