Another glorious year of new music.

It was and don’t let anyone tell you any different.

Yes. This week was late. Very late. I have no one to blame but me. And an airplane. And me. And work. And me. Mostly me.

Thanks for listening. It doesn’t matter if this is your first time listening to NEXT or if you are a repeat listener. Although I do love repeat listeners. You are my favorites. Thank you. I love people that love music and I love people that look for music beyond what you hear on the top 40 stations. I am also a big fan of guitar. So if you like guitar – I can’t thank you enough.

Next is your place for new music discovery. This week we look back. Again. Week 4 of 5. A quick rewind. A review of the past year. I love looking back at all the songs we listened to on NEXT. Every year I tell myself every week I’m going to put these songs in order and every year I end up the week before Week 1 of these 5 weeks quickly going though almost 300 songs. Any of these songs could be anyway on these weeks. Man, I love music. And boy, oh boy, do I love new music.

Have I thanked you for listening yet? Thank you.

As always, our goal is to find you – a NEXT, new favorite song. Let us know how we are doing. If we do find you a NEXT, new favorite song, please share with us what it is. I always like to hear what you like to hear. Does that make sense?

Glorious noise from: Snail Mail, Houses, Baskery, Soccer Mommy, Marcus King Band, Muddy Ruckus, The Grip Weeds, The Wombats, Amanda Shires, Dan Mangan, Sloan, Need To Breathe, Michigander, Wilderado, Adia Victoria

Thanks for listening and thanks again to Ocean 98 for putting next on the radio.

New music discovery is important and thank you for doing your part.

Please support these bands…or we wouldn’t have bands like this around to support. Buy an album, or a ticket to a show, or a tee shirt, or…something from them. Thank you.

If there are any bands/managers/labels etc that want their music removed (for any reason) please contact me (chris at allthingsnext dot com) and I’ll promptly remove it. Thank you, bands, for making music. Thank you for making my life better because of the music you make. I am a passionate music consumer as are my listeners. If you think NEXT streaming music is bad please think it over again. I am a music maker advocate.

Spotify playlist updates on Thursday. Link to Chris Bro on Spotify.
