This week on NEXT. Freddie is back with a box set…more The Mats, and much more.

Squid is a 5 piece from UK. I’ve never seen them live. But please tell me they are brilliant live. Please. They sound fun as hell. girl in red is a 20 year old from Norway. 20. Bloody hell. The Replacements with the un released “We Know The Night” Tom Waits stopped by while they were recording. And magic happened. And drinking. Paul has always known how to turn a phrase. This song rings quite true. They didn’t (still might not) know wrong and right but they know the night. Yes, they do. Understatement really. The only truer line might be “one foot in the door – they other one in the gutter”. And did you think I was kidding about playing their whole box set? I might stop now though…maybe

Beabadoobee. Did you think a 20 year old was impressive? She’s a 19 year old Londoner. Starcrawler – They lean close to The Runaways. Evan Bartels is a Nebraska boy that calls Nashville home now. Kate Tempest. Hey look another brit from London. Crossing the big pond a lot this week. Ohtis with a brilliant addiction and recover album. Dylan LeBlanc covers INXS.

Freddie Mercury has a box set coming out sometime in the near distant future. Marcus King going solo I do miss the horns. And we end with The Allman Betts Band. You know the name Allman. You know Betts. And yes it sounds the way you’d like it to sound.

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.
