This week on Next.

Temples start us off. Seemed like a perfect intro to this week and it flowed quite well into the latest from Tame Impala. See them live. Hint. Hint. Wink. Wink. Nudge. Nudge. For as we all know, or have at least heard me say (or read me write?) live music is good for your soul. Front man of NEXT favorite, and one the greatest live bands, I’ve seen black taxi. This is a solo album by iErza. Mondo Cozmo sounds good on this one. That’s why I played it. Jimi Hendrix. Live. You need more? It’s with his trio. And it sounds brilliant. Drive By Truckers are next. I know it’s been forever and I still miss Isbell. And yes, I like they I get DBT and Isbell solo. Reminds me of Uncle Tupelo. Happy that I got Son Volt and Wilco and (AND) still miss UT. I guess what I’m saying this song rocks. Courtney Barnett does Courtney Barnett things. Sounds great. Duh. Spoon are releasing outtakes, demos, and unreleased songs from their vault. I think they’ve made the right choices through out the years. Still happy to hear their ideas though.

Country tinged and Twin Peaks sound fantastic. The more I listen. The more I like. I’m a fan of “loud” Twin Peaks and am digging this sound too. So I’m saying they have talent. JD McPherson. This song was written for record store day. Love the play on words. I like the two-part harmonies from this dallas band called D and Chi. I don’t watch reality TV. Especially, singing shows. I guess they tried out for one. Or 2. I’m Not A Blonde came to my attention via Twitter and Italy. How cool is that? I’ll answer. Very. Very cool. And to get you in the holiday spirit the band Joesph give us NYE. Still they best new year’s song is by DCFC. Hands down. Everyone else should just stop trying. They’re all playing for second place. Ozzy Osbourne has a new solo album in 2020 and just released a box set of all his solo albums…just in time for the holiday season. I know strange timing right?

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.
