  • Yes bring I-Tunes back… meanwhile I cannot get away from Churchill as my fave new tune and Airborne Toxic after that. I am sure both will be on your end of the year collection

  • If I can block Change by Churchill from my mind then the joy formidable songb will be my favorite of the month.
    Glad to hear Eels again.
    Heart should be the winner of live coverage song of the year.
    Hendrix Wah Wah is more ouch ouch, can’t make him a NEXT song, after all.

  • On the one hand, I can’t fault the selection of music this month – this week was a great listen – I’m especially happy with The Joy Formidable selection (the whole album is great, too). But on the other hand, It was bad enough not to see Johnny Marr or Richard Thompson in the best of January, but the glaring omission of Yo La Tengo is egregious! Is NEXT guilty af age discrimination?? NEXT music is a young man’s ( or woman’s) game?? I mean, no David Bowie either?? C’mon!

    Otherwise, great stuff. Rock on!

  • It doesn’t matter an old act or young
    It is all about a good song
    Played on NEXT in december, Eric Burdon out of my mind is a good one.
    Play on more.

  • Way behind on this but Free Energy reminds me of Dawes. Really loved Best Day of My Life. Not feeling Eels. Listening to the rest now…
