Now this is how you start a new year. 2018 was a brilliant year for new music and this week is, as stated, a great way to kick off another new year of new music. Whether you listen on the radio, or on demand at the website, or if you just want the songs with no Chris Bro vox via Spotify…thank you. I appreciate you listening. Thank you for not listening to just the songs you listened to in college. New music is important. It’s science.

Thanks for listening. It doesn’t matter if this is your first time listening to NEXT or if you are a repeat listener. 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 toward the future. Welcome to 2019 everyone. I hope you enjoyed our extended look back at 2018. 5 weeks.

As always, our goal is to find you – a NEXT, new favorite song. Let us know how we are doing. If we, in fact, 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: Jocelyn And Chris Arndt, Strand Of Oaks, Sharon Van Etten, The Goon Sax, Deerhunter, Telekinesis, Stella Donnelly, Beirut, Michael Franti And Spearhead, Adia Victoria, Gary Clark Jr, The Raconteurs, The Claypool Lennon Delirium, Karen O And Danger Mouse

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.


WARNING may contain bad words. Or may not. Depends.
