What a week.

Liz Phair is back after a decade. As if her book wasn’t enough. Can’t wait to read it. Recently finished Jeff Tweedy’s, The Replacements, and Beastie Boys books. Who says things happen in 3’s. Speaking of The Mats – I’m sure you knew I would play more of the box set this week. Hell, I may keep playing 2 songs each week until I get through the full musical collection. As you know I feel it’s Beatles. Stones, then The Replacements. You can’t argue science.

The Nick Cave is sadly, beautiful. Yes, stolen (heavily borrowed) from The Replacements. (I think in music) (Sometimes) (Most of the time) It’s an album about his son’s death. Put this one on late at night. On the other end of the spectrum is Hiss Golden Messenger. An album about family. Love. And, well, dealing with family and love.

DIIV is heavy and dreamy. How can one be dreamy and heavy. Take a listen. You’ll see. Hear. You know what I mean.

I wouldn’t go through every song. Maybe I should. What do you think?

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.

Wilco’s latest is quietly cool and beautiful. It’s mostly about finding good in the bad times we are in right now. A lot of Chicago this week. Ok, not a lot, but a few. Karl Denson is just a cool cat. Sax for the Stones tour. This great album

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