Hello lovers. Lovers of new music. I appreciate that you listen to the NEXT. There’s a lot of great music and a lot of places you can find new music. The fact you listen to NEXT means quite a bit.

Let’s get to the music this week. Man, I love this Bleached album. I go back to it time and time again. Beatles. Stones. 1 and 1a. A tie really. Then? I say The Mats. Talk me out of it. You can’t. And I want you to try. This The Glorious Sons song is so now. If I were in high school this song would be on every mix tape. Greg Dulli with his first ever solo album. Best know as Afghan Whigs and/or Twilight Singers. One of my all time favorite concerts was Afghan Whigs. Dulli is a brilliant front man.

The Flaming Lips featuring Colorado Symphony recorded live at Red Rocks. Oh hell yes! And if you haven’t seen a show at Red Rocks you need to make that happen sooner rather than later. One of the most beautiful scenes for live music. Just see anything there. The Rolling Stones live. Take my money. Bob Dylan live – never again.

Beck is back. I’m digging his mellow songs on this album. I like when he bugs out too. I’ll have to listen again. I love the lyrics to this Coldplay song. Also, added bonus they are one of the bands that shocked me when I saw them live. So good. So very good. I knew they would be and they went beyond what I was expecting. Plus, the first time I saw them (many moons ago) I got a great Courtney Love story out of it. So I got that going for me.

Mikal Cronin hangs out in a cabin…gets an album out of it. It’s a time honored tradition. I saw don’t mess with a winning streak. A big welcome back to Alanis Morissette and look for a broadway show too. Quite sure it’s the 25th anniversary of some album of hers. Hollis Brown has a slightly different sound on this one. I’m digging it. Nice job NY band. I don’t know Beth Hart but if you only judged her on this song…well it’s another reason not to date a songwriter, right? You don’t want that song written about you. More unreleased Prince. I’ve already mentioned the way I feel about this. Look for this song and many more in a box set of 1999. There’s 3 or 4 different verisons/price ranges too. Of course.

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.
